Le Pont du Nord
Les Films du Losange is one of France’s most prestigious independent production and distribution companies. Founded in 1962 by Barbet Schroeder and Éric Rohmer, at the height of the New Wave, Les Films du Losange has worked and supported some of the most acclaimed filmmakers from all over the world. This tribute to the company’s fiftieth anniversary will feature brand new 35mm prints of films largely shot on location in Paris by two directors closely associated with Losange: Rohmer and the man who replaced him at the helm of Cahiers du cinema—Jacques Rivette.
Bulle Ogier and her real-life daughter Pascale (who tragically died two years later at the age of twenty-five) star in Le Pont du Nord as two women, one of them recently released from prison, who are brought together by fate and a black valise to embark on a dangerous treasure hunt through the City of Lights. Harkening back to the central theme of Celine and Julie Go Boating— two women joined by chance on an enigmatic journey through an urban wonderland—Rivette crafts a delirious, noir-tinged fairy tale.
