Little Fugitive

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.
