Focus on Robert Bresson at Anthology Film Archives

As part of its Essential Cinema Repertory collection, Anthology Film Archives highlights the works of the singular, iconoclastic artist, philosopher and filmmaker Robert Bresson with the screenings of 6 films. From Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne, a unique love story based on a novelette by Denis Diderot and with dialogue written by Jean Cocteau to Mouchette one of the most searing portraits of human desperation ever put on film, Anthology Film Archives conveys a sense of the spiritual yet socially incisive work of Robert Bresson.
