Nausicaa (1970) RIP Agnès Varda

A love story between a French student and a Greek intellectual in France. Varda calls the film “a settling of accounts” with the “fascist” government that the Greeks Colonels have established there. Altough commissioned by the ORTF (French National Television) the film was not aired and all material was destroyed (presumably for political reasons, Varda’s best guess). All material except for a workprint kept by the Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique, which made possible a reconstruction of the film, presented here.

Director: Agnès Varda.
Stars: France Dougnac, Myriam Boyer, Stavros Tornes, Catherine de Seynes, Gérard Depardieu.
