The City of Lost Children

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

A mad scientist steals the dreams of children in Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN. Described as a “macabre fairy tale” (Steven Rea), a “dark phantasmagoria” (Peter Stack), and “a fable of longing and danger” (Kevin Thomas), THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN gave Ron Perlman his first leading film role and features music by Angelo Badalamenti and costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
