More Info:

In the mid-1950s, a radically new vision of French cinema emerged. The short films in this special edition box set represent the dawn of this New Wave - the earliest works of its most emblematic auteurs, which would include Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Agnès Varda, & more. Visionary producer Pierre Braunberger guided their work and financed their early efforts. These are the first forays of a movement that would revolutionize French film and influence cinema around the world for decades to come.
