Yesterday, we had the great honor of hosting the incomparable Anna Karina. The French icon was in the midst of a rare visit to New York, where she’s been making appearances at BAM, Museum of the Moving Image, and Film Forum, which is currently presenting a weeklong survey of her collaborations with Jean-Luc Godard. While she was in the neighborhood, Anna made a stop in our film closet to reminisce about her groundbreaking work with Godard, acting for Agnès Varda in Cléo from 5 to 7, her affection for Charlie Chaplin, and much more.
