Discover the cinema selection we bring to Flagey, Studio 5 - Agnès Varda.

How do you not only represent an event, but make it tactile and pungent? Steve McQueen accomplishes this with an unrelenting approach, through a frank confrontation with the subject matter, and by realizing an uncompromising proximity with it. McQueen’s films focus on subjective experience, and anchors his audience into that experience. That way, “history” hardly feels so distant.
