Our Film 101 series is just like film school without the annoying fear of unemployment. Every month features an important, influential film from a different decade, moving from 1903 in January to 2021 in December. Film screenings include links to additional resources to help historically and culturally contextualize the featured film. Film Synopsis: Monsieur Hulot curiously wanders around a high-tech Paris, paralleling a trip with a group of American tourists. Meanwhile, a nightclub/restaurant prepares its opening night while it's still under construction.
