“It’s about being human. It’s beautiful, it’s touching, it’s acting. It’s acting and reality at the same time.” Last Saturday the Danish-French model, dancer, novelist and icon of the Nouvelle Vague Anna Karina passed away. Together with director/husband Jean-Luc Godard she redefined ‘cool’ in the 1960’s with her effortless beauty and blasé attitude. To honour this giant of French cinèma we’ll screen her best (known) film Pierrot le fou (1965) on the 14th and 18th of January. In French with English subtitles.
Pierrot escapes his boring society and travels from Paris to the Mediterranean Sea with Marianne, a girl chased by hit-men from Algeria. They lead an unorthodox life, always on the run.
