Come kick off our Great Women Directors series with Cleo from 5 to 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7)!
Agnès Varda was the only female voice of the French New Wave. Born in 1928, She has built an impressive and complicated oeuvre of over fifty films and is still directing today.
Selfish pop singer Cléo (Corinne Marchand) has two hours to wait until the results of her biopsy come back. After an ominous tarot card reading, she visits her friends, all of whom fail to give her the emotional support she needs. Wandering around Paris, she finally finds comfort talking with a soldier in a park.
This film is a part of our series on Women Film Directors. Memberships are available through the SOPAC box office either in person, online at the SOPAC website, or by phone at (973) 313-2787.
