SFT// Agnes Varda – Les Fiances Du Pont MacDonald

SHORT FILM TUESDAY

Les Fiances Du Pont MacDonald (1961)

This early short film, by often over looked filmmaker Agnes Varda, is a dark comedy about love and death, executed as an homage to the work of Buster Keaton. Cast as the leads are “New Wave” super couple Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina, who add a reflexive playful air with their presence. In the future, with films like Lion’s Love, Varda would again pursue similar genre themes and cast her filmmaker friends in the leads.
