Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1986

With Delphine Seyrig, Miriam Boyer, Fanny Cottencon

This audacious, exuberant musical—about the romantic ups and downs of young women working in an ultra-stylized soundstage shopping mall—plays like a classic MGM confection filtered through Akerman’s avant-garde formalism. Oddly catchy New Wave songs (with lyrics by the director herself), quirky choreography, and a pastel-colored visual palette are among the many delights in one of Akerman’s most inventive and daring experiments.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 9:15pm screening of Golden Eighties is canceled. We apologize for the inconvenience.
