French New Wave in the New Millennium

The directors of the French New Wave made some of the most iconic works of art in the 20th century’s most vital medium. The revolutionary achievements of their youth are matched only by how they themselves have endured, continuing to push the medium forward into the 21st century. This series, Plus ça change, brings together late-career masterworks by titans like Jean-Luc Godard, Alain Resnais, Jacques Rivette, and Agnès Varda, revealing artists who have adapted to changing styles, politics, and technologies while remaining as playful, rigorous, and radical as ever.
