Screening of The Little Fugitive (1953) by Morris Engel, Ruth Orkin and Raymond Abrashkin at the Christine Cinéma Club on October 26 at 8pm.
To complement Ruth Orkin’s exhibition Bike Trip, USA, 1939, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson and the Christine Cinéma Club will be holding a special screening of the film directed by Ruth Orkin, her photographer and filmmaker husband Morris Engel and their friend Raymond Abrashkin, on Thursday, October 26 at 8pm.
Based on the story of a young boy who runs away from home to spend the day in Coney Island, The Little Fugitive is reminiscent of the journey across the United State Ruth Orkin embarked on at the age of 17 to visit the New York World’s Fair. François Truffaut later expressed his admiration for the film, which foreshadowed the Nouvelle vague cinematographic style and served as an inspiration for Les 400 coups.

When a seven-year-old boy (Richie Andrusco) is tricked into believing he killed his older brother, he gathers his meager possessions and flees to New York’s nether wonderland: Coney Island. Upon and beneath the crowded boardwalk, Joey experiences a day and night filled with adventures and mysteries, resulting in a film that is refreshingly spontaneous and thoroughly delightful.
