Though this will the be film’s first U.S. theatrical treatment, she told the Hollywood Reporter that the short seven-day run has not quite satisfied her. “I can get the Palme d’Or, but I can’t get exhibition, so it’s a contradiction,” she lamented. “I would have wished ‘Jane B.’ came out in better conditions.”
The film, which also features appearances by Serge and Charlotte Gainsbourg, mixes documentary practices with fantasy sequences, like a black-and-white Laurel and Hardy parody featuring Birkin and Varda herself.
Agnes Varda’s “Jane B.” will screen at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas October 16-22.
