Agnès Varda’s directorial debut bears the realist approach, social comment and filmmaking flair that would become her hallmarks. La Pointe Courte is widely considered to be the first film of the influential French New Wave movement, appearing four years before the debut of Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard. Set in a declining Mediterranean fishing village, the film portrays both the complex relationship between a married couple, and the economic difficulties facing the wider community.

The Wed 5 Sep (18.10) screening will be introduced by film critic Sophie Monks Kaufman.
