Films on the Green 2015 presents a rare screening of La Dérive in Transmitter Park, Brooklyn on July 24.

“I’m so moved—I’ve just seen La dérive—no one has ever done more with quiet audacity than Delsol with this film.” — Jean Rouch

“The only comparison to La dérive, and its audacity, are the early films of Ingmar Bergman.” —François Truffaut

"La Dérive is very much a film of its time, with many of the characteristics we now identify with the French New Wave: almost exclusive use of natural locations, crude editing, even cruder acting, and bags of style." - James Travers


La Dérive
By Paula Delsol
with Jacqueline Vandal, Pierre Barouh, Paulette Dubost
1963 | Romance | UR | 1h30 | France

Jacquie, a beautiful young girl, returns home in the South of France. There, she regretfully re-assimilates to a life with her childhood friends, stay-at-home mother and unhappily married sister. She drifts from lover to lover in the process of shredding the social conventions that dictate a life of submission and resignation.

Film in French with English subtitles
FREE and open to the public
