The Len Lye Centre Cinema is proud to present a selection of films from the French New Wave movement which emerged in the 1950’s and 1960’s and is widely considered one of the most influential movements in the history of cinema.

The deep conversation between a Japanese architect and a French actress forms the basis of this celebrated French film, considered one of the vanguard productions of the French New Wave. Set in Hiroshima after the end of World War II, the couple -- lovers turned friends -- recount, over many hours, previous romances and life experiences. The two intertwine their stories about the past with pondering the devastation wrought by the atomic bomb dropped on the city.

FR/JP, 1959, 90 min., Dir. Alain Renais
