"How do we learn? What do we know? Night after night, not long before dawn, Patricia and Emile meet on a sound stage to discuss learning, discourse, and the pathe to revolution> Scenes of the May '68 student revolts, the Vietnam war, posters, photographs, and cartoons form the backdrops to their words, which themselves are often their subject, as are images, sounds and juxtapositions. Based loosely on Jean Jacques Rousseau's incendiary treatise, "Emile, or on education", Godard's "Le gai savoir" is a montage, a meditation, a reflection on ideas - and how filmmaking is a path."--Container
L'enfant sauvage Wild child by François Truffaut( Visual )

10 editions published between 1969 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed Oscar-nominated director Fran??ois Truffaut (Small Change, Day for Night) has created an absorbing (Leonard Maltin) film about the true-life tale of a young boy found living alone in the woods of France in the 1700s. Using actual journal entries, Truffaut not only directed and co-wrote the script with Jean Gruault, but also starred as the unflappable Doctor Jean-Marc-Gaspard Itard, the visionary who takes on the incredible task of civilizing The Wild Child. At The National Institute for the Deaf and Dumb in Paris, a barely clothed and dirty young boy is admitted. Found in a forest, the child is unable to speak, communicate or function in society. Christened Victor by the hospital staff, his case is taken up by Doctor Itard (Truffaut),a lone physician who has an unyielding dedication to re-integrating the lad into society. But the road to tame the beast is a rocky one and Itard will have to work tirelessly to teach Victor how to re-claim his place in the world even if it means staking his reputation on it!
