Jacques Tati’s 16-minute short film from 1947, L’École des Facteurs, or The School for Postmen, is exclusively available on the Guardian Film website — watch it to see why the French director ranks up with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the world’s great filmmakers. Containing many of the same jokes and gags as Tati’s debut feature Jour de Fête  (which was released two years later) it features Tati as a lugubrious mailman undergoing training to improve the efficiency of the French postal service. The School for Postmen  distils Tati’s genius in embryonic form, and is available as part of The Essential Jacques Tati Collection on Blu-ray.

We’re absolutely delighted that Criterion will be releasing a restoration of this (as well as of Tati’s other short films) as part of their upcoming Complete Jacques Tati boxset. Thanks to John Maclean for the heads up.

Excerpts from the documentary Once Upon a Time… Mon Oncle. Jacques Tati explains his methods of filmmaking, with reference here to his parody of modernism in the 1958 film Mon Oncle. David Lynch remarks on the significance of sound effects in Tati’s films.

Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow.
