AT MAD’S NEW HOME, JULY 11-AUGUST 30

Weekend Screenings Pay Tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the French New Wave


Cleo From 5 to 7
August 8 & 9, 2 PM
1962, 90 mins. Directed by Agn├Ęs Varda. With Corinne Marchand, Antoine Bourseiller. Unfolding in real time, but with a jazzy, expressionistic style that echoes its heroine’s inner journey, Agnes Varda’s 1962 film about a famous model whose health crisis (and a fateful tarot card reading) cause her to reevaluate her life as she wanders through Paris, is one of the under-appreciated masterworks of the French New Wave. Varda called it “a portrait of a woman painted onto a documentary about Paris.” In its dissection of celebrity culture and superficiality, the movie is especially timely today.


The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
August 8 & 9, 4 PM
1964, 91 mins. Directed by Jacques Demy. With Catherine Deneuve. It won the grand prize at Cannes and launched Catherine Deneuve to international stardom. But Jacques Demy’s Technicolor-inspired all-singing romance about a young woman and her garage-mechanic boyfriend who goes off to war in Algeria was seen by many critics at the time as frivolous. The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is now considered a classic. The film’s aching romanticism is captured by Michel Legrand’s wall-to-wall score, and Bernard Evein’s impossibly lush production design.
