French New Wave filmmaking goddess Varda is honoured in both cities this fortnight with comprehensive retrospectives of her feature and documentary work. Highlights include a new digitally restored print of her blinding 1962 exercise in cinema truth Cleo from 5 to 7, her amazing 1965 dissection of marriage, fidelity and family Le Bonheur, vagrant road movie Vagabond starring the young and fearless Sandrine Bonnaire, plus masterful documentaries The Gleaners and I and Beaches of Agnes. Ticket deals available, you are going to need them.
