“Shoot the Piano Player” A Hit!

June 24, 2009

This past Sunday, Shoot the Piano Player was screened as part of the MCTV/Town Hall Theater French New Wave film series. Audience response was great, and the series is prompting audience members to do their own further research on the films and the French New Wave.

Did you know that Truffaut wanted to make a film that nobody would like? Our Middlebury audience’s verdict: he didn’t succeed!
