Compiled from unused footage donated by Jean-Luc Godard, Eustache’s third short is a guerrilla-style comic film starring Jean-Pierre Léaud as a hustler out to make a quick buck and attract girls by taking a job as a street-corner Santa.

Followed by Le cochon (Jean-Michel Barjol and Jean Eustache) 1970 50 mins – Unclassified 15+. This verité-style, ethnographically precise documentary follows the path of a pig from being slaughtered to the dinner plate. “A beautiful, sensitive, big-hearted short documentary that shows not a trace of the despair and defeat radiating from Eustache’s fictional films” (Jared Rapfogel).
