Film: Cleo From 5 to 7Film, The Screen Wed 11 Mar, 6.30pm
Agnes Varda, 1962 (PG)
This season, our film programme, The Screen at Contemporary, presents 24 Frames: the films and influences of Martin Scorsese.
A singer is anxiously awaiting medical results as she walks the streets of Paris from 5-7pm, the hours lovers supposedly meet. A beautiful, nuanced, stylish and subtle slice of French New Wave cinema, this film makes you feel like you’re inhabiting a world that is both filmic and human all at once.
Scorsese was continually inspired by Varda, calling her “one of the Gods” – and we agree. This film is paired with After Hours, which we will screen on Wed 26 Feb, 6.30pm.
£5 per ticket, or any five tickets for £20
