Cleo from 5 to 7 [Cleo de 5 a 7]

N.p. N.p., Circa 1962. Vintage borderless reference photograph from the 1962 French film, showing actors Michel Legrand, Corinne Marchand, and Jean-Pierre Taste—from the memorable early sequence in the film where Legrand and Taste drop in to Marchand's flat. With holograph pencil and ink annotations on the verso.

Agnes Varda's second feature film, following a pop singer over the course of two hours as she talks with friends and anxiously awaits the results of a biopsy.

Varda is an important and influential French director, writer, and artist whose work uses both documentary style realism and experimental film techniques to explore issues of feminism and social justice. A colleague of Alain Resnais and other Rive Gauche filmmakers, her early work, including this film, stylistically prefigures the French New Wave, and is today considered very much a part of it.

Set and shot on location in Paris.

9.5 x 7 inches. Near Fine.
