OLLI at BCC's Foreign Film Shared Interest Group invites you to an online screening and discussion of Jean-Luc Godard's 1960 new-wave classic Breathless, screened in French with English subtitles.  Breathless is one of the earliest and more influential examples of French nouvelle vague cinema, bringing international attention to a new style of French filmmaking.  It stars Jean-Paul Belmondo as a wandering criminal named Michel, and Jean Seberg as his American girlfriend. It is considered one of the best films ever made, appearing in Sight & Sound magazine's decennial polls of filmmakers and critics on the subject on multiple occasions.

Following the film, OLLI members Chris Guidette, Alex Nardacci and Peter Bluhm will lead a discussion on the film.  They'll also seek your input on future films for the group to view and discuss.

Participation is free and exclusively for all OLLI at BCC members. (If you are not yet a member, please join to take part in this program by calling 413.236.2190 or join online here.)  

Pre-registration is required. Click here to register online or call 413.236.2190 (M-F 9am-4pm) to register by phone. Learn more about OLLI at BCC's other Shared Interest Groups here.
