FRA | 1965 | dir. Jacques Rivette, with Anna Karina, Liselotte Pulver, Micheline Presle, Francine Bergé

Initially banned in France on grounds of anti-clericalism, Jacques Rivette’s take on Diderot’s 1760 novel recounts the twists and turns of Suzanne (Anna Karina) stuck in the throes of sadistic persecution as she is forced to enter a convent against her own will. One of the most breathtaking and emotional works of French cinema, Jacques Rivette’s exquisite drama appears now in a glorious new 4K digital restoration.

Followed by a discussion with Nick Walker (Rochester Kino Cinema Club)
