See the movie that François Truffaut claims paved the path for the French New Wave movement when the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston screens Little Fugitive (1953). Filmmakers used a concealed, custom-made 35mm camera to capture New York's Coney Island, the setting for the poetic story of a seven-year-old boy (Richie Andrusco) who, mistakenly believing he killed his brother, runs away from home. Considered an American classic, the independent film won a Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival when it was first released. Today's screening, part of the MFAH's Film Revivals series, marks the film's 60th-anniversary re-release.
