Cléo from 5 to 7 (Anxiety Arts Festival)

A classic of the French New Wave, directed by Agnès Varda. This 1962 film has a simple set-up, as we follow Cleo, a singer living in Paris, over the course of two hours, whilst she awaits the news of her medical diagnosis with trepidation. Though her anxious state is barely visible, it nevertheless draws her into a series of encounters. We experience the world through the eyes of someone who through circumstance begins to see everything in a different way.

"Varda has chosen to show Cleo's anguish virtually in real time, thereby taking into account the emergence and development of the technique of 'direct cinema'.  The casualness of the narrative allows fiction to merge with documentary, (and includes) dazzling tracking shots.  But Varda's realism is also capable of generating powerful emotion"  Frank Lafond - 1001 movies to see before you die

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
