new wave at the bfi

from today until 31 may, the bfi will be showing films from agnès varda.

Agnès Varda's role as true pioneer of the New Wave with La Pointe Courte (1954) is now acknowledged. Her compelling features – Cleo from 5 to 7 (1963) and Vagabond (1985) – and documentaries such as The Gleaners and I (2000) and The Beaches of Agnès (2009), place her firmly among the major post-war French filmmakers.
