Step into the streets of sixties Paris with a screening of Agnès Varda’s radical second feature on the big outdoor concert screen on Millennium Square. An exemplary film of the French New Wave, Cleo from 5 to 7 chronicles two hours in the life of pop singer Cléo (an iconic performance by Corrine Marchand), as she anxiously awaits the test results of a biopsy. Aimlessly roaming the Parisian streets, she encounters several friends and strangers, including a soldier on leave from the Algerian war. Blending vérité and melodrama, Varda creates an arresting portrait of one woman's inner journey as she confronts mortality.

"Beautifully shot and realized, this film offers an irreplaceable time capsule of Paris" - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
