Directed by Louis Malle • 1954 • France
In 1954, Louis Malle was a film student at the Institut des hautes études cinématographiques (IDHEC) in Paris, where he shot this rarely seen short, CRAZEOLOGIE. Inspired by the theater of the absurd of such playwrights as Samuel Beckett and Eugène Ionesco, the film is punctuated with the Charlie Parker song “Crazeology.”
