Cléo from 5 to 7

France/Italy,1962

Directors: Agnès Varda

Showing: 11 March 2020


This pioneering New Wave film from director Agnès Varda, who died in 2019, is being screened as a tribute to her phenomenal achievement as a woman film-maker. It tracks the odyssey through Paris of Cléo, a young singer awaiting the result of a cancer test, due between the “lovers’ meeting hours” of 5 and 7pm. Varda challenges the rules of classical filmmaking, manipulating time, space, colour and genre in dazzling style.

(90 mins, cert. PG, French with sub-titles)
