Jean-Pierre Léaud at 75

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

This series surveys the career of a French New Wave icon, from his youthful roles as François Truffaut's alter ego Antoine Doinel to his embodiment of a dying Louis XIV.

This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood has to say about Jean-Pierre Léaud at 75 :

In the final freeze frame of Francois Truffaut’s 1959 masterpiece “The 400 Blows,” a young Jean-Pierre Leaud became the face of youthful alienation and the French New Wave. Difficult as it is to believe, the actor—who, in his movie debut, embodied that lost boy—is now a senior citizen. BAMPFA’s series retraces Leaud’s work with Truffaut, Godard, Assayas and other leading French auteurs.
