THIS SEPTEMBER: The Paradise is putting on three double-features to celebrate the individual achievements of cinema’s most distinguished duo. Welcome to THE WORLD OF JACQUES AND AGNÈS- a short and sweet series to honour the storied careers of the French New Wave’s greatest power couple-Jacques Demy and Agnès Varda.

YOU ARE NOT BORN A WOMAN ... YOU BECOME ONE. Night two of our series- Jacques and Agnès: the Musicals! We are screening two of the finest screen musicals- each featuring a duo of dancing gals! Join us at 8 PM for Varda's feminist odyssey set to song- 1977's ONE SINGS THE OTHER DOESN'T.

In the early 1960s in Paris, two young women become friends. Pomme is an aspiring singer. Suzanne is a pregnant country girl unable to support a third child. Pomme lends Suzanne the money for an illegal abortion, but a sudden tragedy soon separates them. Ten years later, they reunite at a demonstration and pledge to keep in touch via postcard, as each of their lives is irrevocably changed by the women’s liberation movement. A buoyant hymn to sisterly solidarity rooted in the hard-won victories of a generation of women, One Sings, the Other Doesn’t is one of Agnès Varda’s warmest and most politically trenchant films, a feminist musical for the ages.

Buy tickets to our 8 PM presentation of ONE SINGS, THE OTHER DOESN'T and receive a promo-code for 30% off admission to our 5 PM presentation of THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT.
