Paris: Jolly Film, 1967. Vintage black and white single weight borderless press photograph of director Jacques Tati on the office complex set of his epic 1967 film.
Here Tati appears in full regalia as Monsieur Hulot, standing amidst the construction of the vast office complex set that occupies the first half of the film. Hulot first came to the attention of the world during his beach vacation in “Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday” (1953), then reappeared in a modern French neighborhood in “Mon Oncle” (1958). The third feature finds him in the city, whose complexities unfold, revolve, deconstruct, and reconstruct before his eyes.

The Endless Summer | 1966 | dir. Bruce Brown

I have always wanted to learn how to surf, so to watch Mike Hynson and Robert August travel across the globe to spots throughout Africa, Australia, Tahiti, New Zealand, California, and Hawaii to live their endless summer made me incredibly jealous in the best way possible, and the beauty behind Bruce Brown’s simple directing, cinematography, and narration made this documentary very relaxing and fun to watch.
