Cleo From 5 to 7

May 19th - May 21st • (All day) • The Frida Cinema

Director Agnes Varda’s existential real-time film follows Cleo, a spoiled pop singer and hypochondriac as she wanders through Paris between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. worried that she may have cancer— yet more concerned about how it might disfigure her than kill her. That bleak tagline aside, Varda’s masterpiece was hailed as a dazzling example of the French New Wave in 1962 and a powerful commentary on the subject of female identity that critic Molly Haskell writes shows how that identity “is a function of how women see and are seen by the world.” Aware of her own mortality, Cleo struggles with her existence and finds a kindred soul in the form of a soldier of the Algerian War who believes they are all dying for nothing. Don’t miss this gorgeous and gripping art film on the big screen!
