The 400 Blows

François Truffaut’s first feature is also his most personal. Told through the eyes of his cinematic counterpart, Antoine, the film sensitively re-creates the trials of his own childhood, unsentimentally portraying aloof parents, oppressive teachers, and petty crime. It marked Truffaut’s passage from leading critic to trailblazing auteur of the French New Wave.

Beyond the Visible - Hilma af Klint

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery.

A Well Spent Life

A deeply moving tribute to Texas blues man Mance Lipscomb, whom many people consider to be the greatest blues guitarist and songster of all time. This glowing portrait of the legendary musician (also life-long husband and sharecropper) is among Blank’s special masterworks. Instead of growing bitter, tough times made Lipscomb sweet. This is reportedly the favorite film of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
