French and Francophone Female Directors in 13 Different Movie Screenings

In light of the recent passing of French filmmaker, feminist and pioneer of the French New Wave, Agnès Varda, Films on the Green dedicates this special 12th edition of “Women Behind the Camera” to her memory. This year’s program, highlighting “Women Behind the Camera,” is also full of strong female portraits and empowering stories, from coming-of-age stories (Peppermint Soda, Mustang, Aya of Yop City), to gender identity and LGBTQ love stories (Tomboy, Olivia), and from female bonding (Sequins, The Amazing Catfish, Where Do We Go Now?), to women who persevere despite setbacks (Coco Before Chanel, In Safe Hands).
