Les 400 Clicks

For his multimedia project Les 400 Clicks (2008), Montreal-based artist Adam Sajkowski arbitrarily selected 400 frames from François Truffaut’s feature debut and New Wave classic Les 400 coups (“The 400 Blows”) and matched each one to a second-long snippet of the opening title composition. Viewers/users cue each frame by clicking on the one before, meaning that it takes 400 clicks to get through Les 400 Clicks. Get started by clicking here. (Rhizome)
