Nouvelle Vague Landmarks: The French New Wave and the reach for new cinematic expression

23 January – 8 May, 2013

The French New Wave changed the cinema completely, from how we make movies to how we watch them. Initiated by film critics from the magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, the Nouvelle Vague led to films shot on the cheap about contemporary subjects on one hand, while playfully re-imagining genres such as Science Fiction and musicals on the other.
