Cléo from 5 to 7

Presented by Fabrica

Cléo from 5 to 7 / 1962 / Subtitled / 1hr&50mins / Rated PG

In part of our exploration of Mental Health Awareness Week, this May we will be screening the haunted, charming and playful classic from Agnès Varda , “Cléo from 5 to 7”.

We follow a beautiful and glamorous singer best known by her stage name Cléo Victoire as tries to occupy her time around the city of Paris while waiting for biopsy test results from her doctor. Cléo befriends a young soldier who is about to ship out to Algeria, also facing an uncertain and daunting future; this French New Wave film explores the themes of existentialism and discussions of mortality.

“Cléo from 5 to 7 crackles with the energy and modernity of that cinephile movement, but it’s ultimately an introspective piece, characterised by the philosophical preoccupations of Varda’s Left Bank peers. Corinne Marchand plays Cléo, a blonde pop singer whose vanity relaxes as her anxieties swell. As the film begins, she visits a tarot reader, hoping for good news about the medical test results she is awaiting – but the cards spell only death, and transformation.” Pamela Hutchinson

Doors & refreshments open at 6pm for a 6:30pm start. Affordable refreshments and popcorn stand on site.
