New 4K Restoration

Paris, 1750s. Forced to take vows, rebellious nun Anna Karina is shunned, tortured, and then exorcised by her austere community; and at last finds relief in a fun-loving, sorority-like convent, where she becomes the latest plaything of Mother Superior Liselotte Pulver (Cagney’s secretary in Wilder’s One, Two, Three). A tour de force for New Wave icon Karina, straight from Rivette’s stage adaptation (produced by Anna’s then-husband Jean-Luc Godard), itself adapted from Denis Diderot’s pre-Revolution novel. Rewritten three times before it was passed by the French censors – only to be banned for over a year by the Minister of Information. 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 135 min.

Opening at Film Forum on January 4; runs daily through January 17, 2019.

Playing in Los Angeles January 18-24, 2019 at Laemmle Theaters.
