Directed by Anna Biller; produced by Anna Biller; written by Anna Biller; scored and composed by Anna Biller with costumes and set pieces also designed by Anna Biller; if the auteur theory in essence refers to a director as the singlular visionary creator of a film, then Biller takes that theory and puts a more practical spin…

Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi)

September 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm BST

Sandrine Bonnaire won the Best Actress César for her portrayal of the defiant young drifter Mona in Agnès Varda’s Vagabond. Found frozen to death in a ditch at the beginning of the film, Mona’s story is pieced together through flashbacks told by those who encountered her (played by a largely non-professional cast), producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. With its sparse, poetic imagery, Vagabond is a compelling watch, and won Varda the top prize at the 1985 Venice…

Peppermint Soda (Diabolo Menthe)

September 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BST

Winner of the Louis Delluc Prize for France’s best film of the year in 1977, Peppermint Soda follows the lives of two teenage sisters: introverted Anne (Eléonore Klarwein) on the cusp of adolescence; and outgoing Frédérique (Odile Michel), making her first forays into love and politics. The debut feature from director Diane Kurys, Peppermint Soda gives an intricately detailed view of adolescence in 1960s France; an ode to teenage summers, first kisses and first losses. Peppermint Soda is part of…
