'Cleo from 5 to 7'
This improbably awesome film about a self-absorbed singer waiting to hear whether she has cancer is by Agnès Varda (The Gleaners and I
)—the only female filmmaker and feminist
to be associated with the French New Wave. The purpose of this Northwest Film Forum screening, however, is to consider the Michel Legrand score
; the 9:00 p.m. screening of Cleo
is paired with a 7:00 p.m. screening of the candy-colored musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
, by Varda's husband Jacques Demy. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 267-5380
. 9 pm, $5—$8.50
