Did you know that a novelization of Jacques Tati’s 1958 French film “My Uncle” was published at the time? The Japanese edition of the novelization has just been published, more than half a century after its publication. The book is full of elegant illustrations. The illustrations were drawn by Pierre Etex, who is also famous for the poster of “My Uncle. If you like Tachi’s films, we recommend that as well.
Mikado Koyanagi, who translated the novelization of “My Uncle”, will come to Chignitta on Sunday, January 29, when the Etex Film Festival has just started! And, not to mention that “My Uncle”, we will be hosting a disc jockey-style talk event featuring other Tachi’s works and etex film music on original vinyl records, discussing the book and the film! Mr. Koyanagi has also met Etex before his death, and you may be able to hear such stories. The book “My Uncle” will also be available for purchase at the venue on the day of the event.
If you like Jacques Tati and French cinema, come on down to Chignitta on Sunday, 1/29!
