Overview

POSTPONED. We will update on this website if screenings are rescheduled
Part of "Depth Of Field" in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Presented on a 35mm film print on loan from Cinema Guild.

Inspired by the women in front of and behind the camera currently on view at the museum, MCA Denver, in partnership with Denver Film, presents Depth of Field, a series celebrating female cinematographers. Highlighting often unacknowledged women’s labor and the efforts of cinematographers more broadly, this series provides a sampling of the work of contemporary female cinematographers.

Cinematography by Agnès Godard, a frequent collaborator of director Claire Denis, who has worked
on a multitude of films including Beau Travail and Trouble Everyday.

Lionel (Alex Descas), a widower, has raised his daughter, Josephine (Mati Diop), on his own since she was young. The two are used to living alone, dependent solely on one another. But, now that Josephine is in college, Lionel is beginning to realize they cannot stay isolated forever. Lionel reluctantly accepts the fact that his daughter has grown up and will one day leave him, when their neighbor Noe (Grégoire Colin) makes his long-harbored feelings for Josephine known.
