FRA | 1955 | dir. Agnès Varda, withPhilippe Noiret, Silvia Monfort

Anticipating the style and attitude of the New Wave, Agnès Varda’s directorial debut remains as fresh and original as the day it was made. Set in a declining Mediterranean fishing village, the film portrays both the complex relationship between a married couple, exceptionally played by Silvia Monfort and Philippe Noiret, and the economic difficulties facing the wider community.

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