Event Details

Please join us for a screening of TRAFIC

 

Trafic is a 1971 comedy film directed by Jacques Tati. Trafic was the last film to feature Tati’s famous character of Monsieur Hulot, and followed the vein of earlier Tati films that lampooned modern society. 

 

Tati’s use of the word “trafic” instead of the usual French word for car traffic (la circulation), may derive from a desire to use the same ‘franglais’ he used when he called his previous film Play Time, and the primary meaning of trafic is “exchange of goods,” rather than “traffic” per se. 

 

In Trafic, Hulot is a bumbling automobile designer who works for Altra, a Paris auto plant. He, along with a truckdriver and a publicity agent (Maria Kimberly), takes a new camper-car (designed by Hulot) to an auto show in Amsterdam. On the way there, they encounter various obstacles on the road.
