As a prelude to our screenings of the latest Marguerite Duras adaptation, SUZANNA ANDLER, this weekend, we’re thrilled to present this recent restoration of one of her best-known films. HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR, the story of a French woman in post-war Hiroshima who sparks an affair with a Japanese man while simultaneously connecting to her own wartime memories, is a sensuous and groundbreaking classic of the French New Wave.
“[An] Exquisitely beautiful and harrowing meditation on war and love.” – Kate Muir, Times (UK)
