Hosted by Richard Linklater with a post-screening audience discussion. **Please note this screening date has changed from May 14 to May 13**

Agnès Varda’s novelistic study of a homeless young woman who traverses the highways and back roads of France was a highly acclaimed art house sensation in its day and has become even more meaningful as the decades pass. In 35mm.


AFS Founder and Artistic Director Richard Linklater returns with the latest cycle of Jewels In The Wasteland, a series designed to spotlight some of the best films made during the 1980s. This was a time when zillion-dollar studio blockbusters became the norm, while in other corners of the industry, a new kind of independent cinema was taking shape, and auteurs young and old made important work.
