World Film Manifestation Programme
From Mon, Jul 22, 2019 to Tue, Jul 23, 2019 ● at Auditorium Nouvelle Vague

“In 1955, a young stills photographer embarked on directing a feature film, although she claimed scarcely ever to have been to the cinema. She was Agnès Varda and the film was ‘La Pointe Courte’, which was described by Georges Sadoul, the influential film critic, as ‘the first film of the Nouvelle Vague’. Its interplay between conscience, emotion and the real world make it a direct antecedent of Alain Resnais’ ‘Hiroshima Mon Amour’. Varda, who has died aged 90, was henceforth considered the ‘mother of the French New Wave’.”
— Ronald Bergan
    in the obituary of Agnès Varda
    ‘The Guardian’

Dhaka University Film Society (DUFS) is poised to present the latest edition of World Film Manifestation Program (WFMP) on Agnès Varda (30 May 1928–
29 March 2019). A discussion will follow the screening on the second day.

WFMP was initiated all the way back in 2000 by DUFS to give film-lovers an opportunity to watch classic films from different countries of the world.
