MUR MURS
1980, Cine-Tamaris, 81 min, France/USA, Dir: Agnès Varda

Essential viewing for all Angelenos, MUR MURS is Varda’s lively tribute to this city’s outdoor murals, from "Pig Paradise" in Vernon to "The Fall of Icarus" in Venice. Along the way, she captures priceless interviews with the muralists themselves, including 23-year-old Judy Baca, who observes, “I started painting because I realized… that I had never seen a Chicana in a museum.”


CLEO FROM 5 TO 7
Cléo de 5 à 7
1962, Janus Films, 90 min, France, Dir: Agnes Varda

Agnes Varda’s breakthrough film examines two hours in the life of a hopelessly pretty pop singer (Corrine Marchand), who may or may not be dying of cancer. CLEO ranks with BREATHLESS and THE 400 BLOWS as one of the seminal works of the French New Wave. "The streets of Paris are filmed like they have never again been filmed." – Telerama. In French with English subtitles.
