After the Wave

Nouvelle Vague, Nouvelle Vague, Nouvelle Vague.
Yes, the French New Wave is iconic and hugely influential, but le cinéma français didn’t vanish at the end of the 60s.
As our Philippe Garrel retrospective comes to a close, we take a look at his peers: great filmmakers who emerged in the 70s, untethered to a name or common ideology, and set the scene for modern French film.
