Shoot the Piano Player (Tirez sur le pianiste) is a 1960 French New Wave crime drama film directed by François Truffaut and starring Charles Aznavour as Charlie Kohler / Edouard Saroyan, a former classical pianist who has changed his name and now plays jazz in a grimy Paris bar. When Charlie’s brothers, Richard (Jean-Jacques Aslanian) and Chico (Albert Remy), surface and ask for Charlie’s help while on the run from gangsters they have scammed, he aids their escape. Soon Charlie and Lena (Marie Dubois), a waitress at the same bar, face trouble when the gangsters arrive, looking for his brothers.

Presented by the Armenian Film Society and Abril Bookstore.
