Zero De Conduite Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

  • Released1933
  • Running time41 minutes
  • DirectorJean Vigo

Banned until 1945, after the director had been dead for eleven years, Zero De Conduite is an anarchic vision of life in a seedy French boarding school where the intolerable conditions and mindless discipline breed the seeds of revolt. Displaying a sustained poetic realism, the film has exerted a profound influence on popular culture, acting as the inspiration for Lindsay Anderson’s similarly seminal, anti-establishment film, IF… The most famous scene remains the slow motion pillow fight where a magical snowfall of feathers creates an image of rapturous beauty.

Part of the FACT & Liverpool Biennial Film Programme, curated by Sharon Lockhart, who has her first UK solo exhibition at FACT until 26 October.
