Agnès Varda’s masterpiece from 1961 plays on October 22nd.
Fortunes, omens, and superstitions pervade the hours that Cléo (Corinne Marchand), a famous singer, wanders through her life and the streets of Paris awaiting the results of a medical test that could bring dire news. Though her second feature ostensibly unfolds in real time, writer-director Agnès Varda also draws us into the more ambiguous, interior moments of the young and beautiful Cléo’s confrontation with mortality and meaning.
The screening, presented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, is part of the seriesTime: It’s of the Essence
