Nautilus Art Prints Announce Two New Jacques Tati Prints By Tom Whalen And David Merveille
Following the recent release of Jacques Tati’s François à l’Américaine, by Laurent Durieux, Nautilus Art Prints is happy to present its next two screen prints in this great Tati series: Mon Oncle, by Tom Whalen and Les Vacances de Mr Hulot by David Merveille.
Mr Hulot, Jacques Tati’s second self, is one of the most endearing characters of 20th century cinema and 60 years after his debut on the big screen it is still easy to connect with him. With a constantly changing society, rapidly advancing technologies how can we, like him, not feel completely giddy?
Nautilus Art Prints is proud to pay homage to Jacques Tati’s Mr Hulot, in collaboration with les Films de Mon Oncle. As from 1 May 2015, both screen prints will be exclusively available at www.nautilus-artprints.com.
Jacques Tati (born Jacques Tatischeff) was a French filmmaker. Throughout his long career, he worked as a comic actor, writer, and director. In a poll conducted by Enter-tainment Weekly of the Greatest Movie Directors, Tati was voted the 46th greatest of all time. With only six feature-length films to his credit as director, he directed fewer films than any other director on this list of 50.
In early 1946 Jacques Tati and Fred Orain founded the production company Cady-Films, which would produce Tati’s first three films; Jour de fête (The Big Day), Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot (Mr. Hulot’s Holiday) and Mon Oncle (My Uncle).
Tati played the gauche and socially inept lead character, Monsieur Hulot. With his trademark raincoat, umbrella and pipe, Hulot is among the most memorable comic characters in cinema.
Both Mon Oncle, by Tom Whalen and Les Vacances de Mr Hulot by David Merveille will be exclusively available at www.nautilus-artprints.com on the 1st of May 2015.
