50 years of Cahiers du Cinéma
The Cahiers du Cinéma was the single most influential project in the history of film. Founded in 1951, it was responsible for establishing film as the 'seventh art,' equal to literature, painting or music, and it revolutionised film-making and writing. Its contributors would put their words into action: the likes of Godard, Truffaut, Chabrol, Rivette, Rohmer were to become some of the greatest directors of the age, their films part of the internationally celebrated Nouvelle Vague.
As part of the 100 Years of Cinema programme, organised specially to coincide with the centenary of the Institut français, 50 Years of Cahiers du Cinéma will celebrate this legendary publication. Each decade will be represented through a landmark film. This season also marks the publication of A Short History of Cahiers du Cinéma by Emilie Bickerton, who will discuss her book and introduce the screening of Pierrot le Fou on 23 March.
