Cléo from 5 to 7

Directed by Agnès Varda (FR/IT), 1962, 90 min., fr + en subtitles

International Women’s Day is marked with a classic French New Wave piece in which the singer Cléo awaits the results of a biopsy. She moves from superstition to fear, from the rue de Rivoli to the Café de Dôme, from coquetry to anxiety, from her home to the Parc Montsouris. We follow Cléo for ninety extraordinary minutes during June 21, from 5 to 6:30.

Black Barbie

Directed by Comfort Arthur (GH/UK), 2016, 4 min., en

The first film, also thematically related to International Women’s Day, is the animated film Black Barbie by Ghanaian-British animator Comfort Arthur. When Comfort receives a black Barbie doll from her mother as a child, she begins to question her ideas of beauty and self-worth. As she grows up, she begins to bleach her skin to make her feel like she fits into society’s expectations… This short but lively animation, accompanied by the voice of the director herself, tells a personal story that emphasizes the way race enters into our own identities.

Suitable for age 12+, nudity

The event is organised in cooperation with the French Institute.
The digitalization of Kino inak was financially supported by the Audiovisual Fund.
