AGNÈS VARDA: DIEU DU CINÉMA

May at the Trylon

Though affectionately referred to as the Mother of the New Wave, Varda was trained in art history and photography rather than film criticism.

CLÉO FROM 5 TO 7

(1962, DCP, 90m, French w/English subtitles) dir Agnès Varda w/Corinne Marchand, Antoine Bourseiller, Dominique Davray.

This feminist musical follows two women (Liotard, Mairesse) over the course of 14 years as their lives intersect with the Women’s Movement in France.
