In 1996 during the Robert Menzies Lecture, then Prime Minister John Howard used the phrase ‘This black armband view of our history’. This was a phrase that would eventually inspire a protest music movement to adopt the name the Black Arm Band in order to protest Howard’s dismissive historical views on the treatment of Indigenous Australians.

Jacques Tati, France’s unique master of comedy film, was a loner and did not belong to any school except his own. He kept his distance from other directors and from ideas like the cinéma d’auteur. Yet his four main features, made with meticulous care between 1947 and 1968, were created almost entirely by him, as writer, director and star. Tati invites you to see not the comedian, but comedy itself. That explains why he’s given us the adjective ‘tatiesque’ to describe the delicious absurdity of people behaving… well, as they do!
