Bullock Texas State History Museum presents Femme Film Fridays: Jane B. for Agnes V.
Abandoning the traditional bio-pic format and favoring instead a mix of fantasy sequences, acclaimed director Agnes Varda paints a portrait of a woman, Jane Birkin, in Jane B. for Agnès V. Birkin is the famed singer (“Je t’aime … Moi non plus”), actress (Blow Up), fashion icon (the Hermes Birkin bag) and longtime muse to Serge Gainsbourg. The theme of identity flows throughout as we see the impact aging has on a persona that was once encased in the favor of youth.
This evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A with Assistant Professor of Art History at Texas State University, Dr. Jennifer Stob, and filmmaker and media educator, Julia Halperin. Prior to the feature film screening is Jeanne Stern's short films, Rosie Rose and Spiral. Come early for a welcome reception with cash bar.
