Film at Lincoln Center and Janus Films present “The Dirty Stories of Jean Eustache,” a 12-film retrospective of the director’s work, from July 7–13. A 4K restoration of Eustache’s The Mother and the Whore will have a three-week theatrical run at Film at Lincoln Center June 23–July 13.
Few filmmakers have captured the sheer sorrow and humor of being alive in a time and place more majestically than Jean Eustache. A fellow traveler of Cahiers du Cinéma’s Hitchocko-Hawksians in the late 1950s, Eustache was a satellite figure of the ascendant Nouvelle Vague while it was revolutionizing the aesthetics and aesthetic politics of narrative cinema. But he emerged in the second half of the 1960s as a singularly formidable filmmaker in his own right, directing several medium-length fiction films and documentaries before producing one of French cinema’s all-time masterpieces, the titanic and epochal The Mother and the Whore (1973).
The Dirty Stories of Jean Eustache will tour in select North American cities following its North American premiere at Film at Lincoln Center.
In partnership with Janus Films, with special thanks to Les Films du Losange

New 4K Restoration · Through Thursday!At long last presented in a striking new restoration worthy of the film's reputation, Jean Eustache’s hard-to-see masterpiece uses an obsessive, talkative ménage à trois as the jumping-off point for an intense exploration of sexual politics among liberated yet alienated moderns.
New 4K RestorationBeautifully shot in color by Nestor Almendros, My Little Loves is as powerful and unsentimental a portrait of adolescent male angst as anything by Truffaut or Pialat.
