French New Wave Cinema Workshop
La Nouvelle Vague: Not Just for Hipsters!
Go behind the shadows and see in full color all the style, the creation, the influences, lives, and methods of the radical artists and visionaries responsible for this stylishly seminal movement in French Cinema.
Delving deeper than striped sweaters, leather jackets, and heavy eyeliner, this workshop addresses the modern and classical influences on the La Nouvelle Vague movement – economics, politics, and civil dynamics. Gain an aesthetic and contextual appreciation of specific films, but too the genre as a whole.
Not just for hipster appreciation! Lead by an accredit film critic and historian, you’ll walk away – in shadowy lighting and black and white, yes, but too with an accessible academic appreciation and knowledge.
