La Pointe Courte

thursday, march 5 AT 7:30PM | REGULAR ADMISSION PRICES

This March, The Loft Cinema proudly presents our second Agnès Varda retrospective, The Films of Agnès Varda Part Deux, celebrating the release of the Oscar-winning filmmaker’s final work, Varda by Agnès, which opens for a regular engagement on Friday, March 6!

The great Agnès Varda’s film career began with this graceful, penetrating study of a marriage on the rocks, set against the backdrop of a small Mediterranean fishing village. Both a stylized depiction of the complicated relationship between a married couple (played by Silvia Monfort and Philippe Noiret) and a documentary-like look at the daily struggles of the locals, Varda’s discursive, gorgeously filmed debut was radical enough to later be considered one of the progenitors of the coming French New Wave. (Dir. by Agnès Varda, 1956, France, in French with English subtitles, 80 mins., Not Rated)

Preceded by the short film: Along the Coast.  A humorous travelogue of the French Rivera. (Dir. by Agnès Varda, 1958, France, in French with English subtitles, 25 mins., Not Rated)
