To celebrate the (near) end of perpetual clouds and rain, join us for a weekly series of films by Jacques Demy!
Co-programmed by Cris Vázquez de Mercado & Cole Wilder
While the French New Wave is certainly known for its stylish black and white films, Demy largely traded those features for whimsical and colorful productions. From the anachronistic fairy tale that is Donkey Skin to the melodramatic labor-rights musical Une Chambre en Ville and the pastel paradise of The Young Girls of Rochefort, Demy managed to craft a vision of a world that simultaneously pushed boundaries and had fun while doing so.
With these three films, we also present a docu-drama about Demys life, Jacquot de Nantes, created by his partner: the late, great Agnes Varda. In this film, Varda combines intimate and abstract documentary footage of Demy with reenactments of his childhood mixed with elements of his films. The result is a loving document of an artists life and work as told by one of cinemas most talented filmmakers.
These films were chosen as representatives of Demys visual style, ranging from the dreamy technicolor of Donkey Skin and The Young Girls of Rochefort to the toned-down, yet striking visuals of Une Chambre en Ville. Together, they display the range of Demys talent from across his career as one of Frances funnest filmmakers.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible.
