Among the most enduring works of the French New Wave, Cléo from 5 to 7 follows a coquettish cabaret singer in real time as she awaits the results of a troubling medical test. Fueled by a memorable score from Michel Legrand, the film serves as a portrait of Paris in the early 1960s as much as it does a minute-to-minute account of Cléo’s unpredictable emotions in the face of mortality. In a November 2019 BBC poll of the 100 greatest films directed by women, Cléo was voted #2, and Varda had more films on the list than any other filmmaker. (89 mins., DCP)

The early short Diary of a Pregnant Woman conveys the impressions of an expecting mother as she observes her Parisian neighborhood. (17 mins., DCP)
