Cléo from 5 to 7 is a 1962 French New Wave film written and directed by Agnès Varda.
The film follows a young singer, Florence “Cléo” Victoire, at 5 p.m. on June 21, as she waits until 6:30 p.m. to hear the results of a medical test that will possibly confirm a diagnosis of cancer. The film is known for its handling of several of the themes of existentialism, including discussions of mortality, the idea of despair, and leading a meaningful life. The film has a strong feminine viewpoint belonging to French feminism and raises questions about how women are perceived, especially in French society. Mirrors appear frequently to symbolize self-obsession, which Cléo embodies.

Director: Agnès Varda
Starring: Corinne Marchand

    19th Century France: the era of revolutions, changes and experimentations

    This year, the focus will be on a vibrant yet lesser-known century in the history of France: the 19th century.

In between, you will discover or rediscover the turbulent history of the French people who managed to fit seven constitutional systems, two other revolutions, several wars, two emperors, three kings and a Président de la République in 70 eventful years! This fascinating period has left its mark on today’s France, both in politics and culture, and is therefore quite important to understand contemporary France.
