L'UNE CHANTE, L'AUTRE PAS

L'UNE CHANTE, L'AUTRE PAS

Information on the activity

October 19, 2019 to October 20, 2019

By intertwining the destinies of Pauline and Suzanne, two women brought together by a personal crisis, Agnès Varda paints a lively portrait not just of an era, but also of a burgeoning movement that remains uncomfortably relevant in the present day. Tackling abortion, sexual freedom, education and women’s friendship, Varda follows her two protagonists - an aspiring singer and a mother of two - from 1962 to 1976 in this trenchant manifesto-cum-fairy-tale French musical.

The screening on October 19th will be followed by a discussion with Rosanna Maule (associate professor of Film Studies at Concordia) and Guylaine Dionne (director and professor) about Agnès Varda's work and her influence on contemporary female directors.
