Programmed by Katie Schwab

This one-off screening of Playtime was programmed by artist Katie Schwab, as part of Together in a Room. Made in 1967 by French filmmaker Jacques Tati, the film features Tati’s famous alter ego Monsieur Hulot and is best known for its enormous 1:1 scale set – a hybrid, exaggerated modernist Paris designed with architect Eugène Roman. This semi-futuristic cityscape titled ‘Tativille’ contained steel and concrete buildings, multilane tarmac roads, and several trompe l’oeil facades built predominantly of glass. Playtime will be screened within Katie’s installation, an environment inspired by dolls houses and architectural model design.
