Les Femmes Essentielles Film Series: Pierrot Le Fou by Jean-Luc Godard
July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Les Femmes Essentielles is a special series of movie classics starring the most legendary actresses of French cinema. Anna Karina left Denmark at age 18 to pursue a modeling career in Paris. She turned down a supporting role in Breathless, but accepted the lead in Godard’s second feature, Le Petit Soldat. They married the following year and their cinematic collaboration continued with six more features. In Pierrot Le Fou, she plays the femme fatale role to its Godardian extreme: murdering, luring, seducing, abandoning, and playing the damsel-in-distress.
