Tributes — Retrospectives — Films about cinema
FRANCE | 120 minutes | 1977
By intertwining the destinies of Pauline and Suzanne, two women brought together by a personal crisis, Agnès Varda paints a lively portrait not just of an era, but also of a burgeoning movement that remains uncomfortably relevant in the present day. Tackling abortion, sexual freedom, education and women’s friendship, Varda follows her two protagonists - an aspiring singer and a mother of two - from 1962 to 1976 in this trenchant manifesto-cum-fairy-tale French musical.The screening on October 19th will be preceded by an introduction to Agnès Varda's work by Rosanna Maule (associate professor of Film Studies at Concordia) and Guylaine Dionne (director and professor). It will be followed by a Q&A after the film."An optimistic celebration of women and their ongoing liberation, the film remains moving, inspirational, and perhaps a shade too relevant." Slant Magazine"The movie’s audacious irreverence and playful, musical form feel as fresh as ever, as does its call to women to embrace unfettered self-expression by any unconventional means." Village Voice
