Agnès Varda Forever Festival: Cléo from 5 to 7

Anges Varda Forever Festival


Inspired by the Agnes Varda Forever poster project in Portland, Oregon by Laura Glazer and Jennifer "JJ" Jones, Clinton Street Theater is proud to present the Agnes Varda Forever Festival in conjunction with the artists! The pioneering director has been bestowed with an Honorary Palme d'Or, an Academy Honorary Award, and the Golden Lion, among other prestigious awards and was called "one of the Gods of Cinema" by director Martin Scorsese. Varda's work is truly exceptional and spans from the French New Wave to celebrated documentaries in her later years.

Across August we will be screening her following films:

Cléo from 5 to 7
Lions Love (...and Lies)
One Sings, the Other Doesn’t
The Gleaners and I

A Festival Pass for all five movies is $35.

Agnès Varda eloquently captures Paris in the sixties with this real-time portrait of a singer (Corinne Marchand) set adrift in the city as she awaits test results of a biopsy. A chronicle of the minutes of one woman’s life, Cléo from 5 to 7 is a spirited mix of vivid vérité and melodrama, featuring a score by Michel Legrand (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and cameos by Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina.
