Focus Bernadette Lafont

Festivals & Series

Coming accidentally to cinema, Bernadette Lafont started with none other than François Truffaut in his short film Les Mistons. Praised for her looks and talents, she soon became an icon of the New Wave. Her roles as a cute little chick gradually turned into bolder, fierce and free women of the 20th century.

Her own commitment for the emancipation of women and gender equality in the late 60’s and 70’s added to her singular acting career made of Bernadette Lafont a feminist figure.

This short season aims to reflect these great roles and films that made Bernadette Lafont a Bold Woman of French Cinema.
