Zero For Conduct

Boys stage a revolution against beans in this experimental short film. Dying of tuberculosis at the age of 29 in 1934, Jean Vigo leaves behind one full length feature and 3 short films, but posthumously influenced the French New Wave. Zero For Conduct features an astonishing, iconic scene as the boys raise banners and stage a riotous parade in slo-mo through the feather-strewn dorm in nightshirts. Simultaneously experimental and naturalistic, it's a sublime short film.
