LA Weekly Preview of COLCOA

Pierrot le fou‘s digital restoration will receive its post-Cannes international debut on Friday.

The LA Weekly has published my preview of the City of Lights, City of Angeles (COLCOA) French film festival, which begins in full force today and plays through Sunday, April 25th. Of the handful of screeners I watched, I was particularly moved by Alain Cavalier’s Irène, and this may be your only chance of seeing it.

For COLCOA’s full line-up and many events, be sure to check out its website. In addition to the restored Pierrot le fou, I’m also excited about the panel discussion following it about the influence of the New Wave on American film, moderated by David Ehrenstein and including Monte Hellman, Anna Karina, and the Cinémathèque Française’s Serge Toubiana.
