In Paris, April 13th 1970, two theater groups each rehearse avant-garde adaptations of plays by Aeschylus. A young deaf-mute begs for change in cafes while playing the harmonica. A young woman seduces men in order to rob them. As a conspiracy develops, the protagonist's stories start to intertwine... Jacques Rivette (co-founder of the French New Wave along with Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut, Eric Rohmer and Claude Chabrol) has always been that group's most free-spirited and aesthetically radical member. This is very much on display in OUT 1, his fourth feature film and magnum opus, in which a whimsical young man receives anonymous notes that put him on the trail of a mysterious group of people who might or might not be conspirators. Based on an utterly unique concept that includes the absence of a script and nods to Honore de Balzac and Lewis Carroll, OUT 1 has been practically impossible to see for more than forty years.
