Esquire-Mon Oncle (1958)- Deep Dive with Professor Joe Horine

Join us, with Film Professor Joe Horine as he takes us into a Deep Dive of MON ONCLE, including a special introduction before the film and followed by an optional Q&A to discuss the film and its relevance.

In the second of four outings as his iconic alter ego Mr. Hulot, writer/director Jacques Tati delivers his most honored work in his first color film MON ONCLE (My Uncle), a 1958 satire on consumer infatuation with modern architecture and mechanics. 

Tati again masters his skill in pantomime combined with almost no dialogue as Hulot in this Oscar, Cannes and New York Critics award-winner.

SYNOPSIS: Monsieur Hulot visits the technology-driven world of his sister, brother-in-law, and nephew, but he can't quite fit into the surroundings
