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.
