Kids Talk Film #14: PlayTime

Before Willem and Miranda (Kurt’s kids) to back to school after this labour day holiday, they get a big dose of cinema-school with a 70mm print viewing of Jacques Tati’s 1967 classic PlayTime! Episode #14 finds them talking about the film from the road as they get the heck outta town!

The entire series, designed to be a not-too-varnished look at how young kids process movies both in storytelling, plot and meaning, can be found on the Vimeo Kids Talk Film Channel.

This is great! Some nice points on one of my all-time favourite films. So glad the kids dug it – and got the privilege to see it in 70mm!

Thanks, Marc!

We are blessed in this city. I was lucky enough to get them out to 70mm presentations of Playtime and 2001: A Space Odyssey!

(And it was really tempting to see JAWS which was brought back for this weekend…unfortunately it was playing at the same time as PLAYTIME, and I figured when are you ever going to get the chance to see this film in 70mm ever again.)
