Tributes

Her Head in Films Podcast When I was first discovering art house cinema almost a decade ago, I fell in love with the French New Wave and with Anna Karina. She was a goddess to me. She will be profoundly missed.

Phuong Le@smallnartless I love that while ppl’s opinions on JLG might differ, *everyone* falls in love with Anna Karina, who always lended depth and charm to Godard’s films. Let’s not forget that she worked with Rivette, Fassbinder, Visconti & was herself a director as well. This goodbye is devastating.
