Introduced by Nicholas Elliott

Agnès Varda’s first feature, La Pointe Courte was filmed with a small crew in a coastal fishing village and, typical for Varda’s work, proved to be ahead of its time, ultimately inspiring the cinematic new wave in France. Local fishermen play themselves, while a pair of actors, playing a young couple with marital woes, arrive on holiday, a counterpoint to local life against a backdrop of Varda’s neorealist visuals. (Agnès Varda, 1954, subtitles, 86 minutes) Nicholas Elliott is US correspondent for Cahiers du cinéma
