Barbican's Eric Rohmer Directorspective - Tickets to be Won

Eric Rohmer, who died in January of this year, was one of the most respected directors of his generation. One of the key writers and thinkers at Cahiers du Cinéma - the publication that was the cradle for France's Nouvelle Vague - he was slower out of the blocks than younger critics-turned-filmmakers like Godard, but he was to forge a reputation for his artistic and economic independence, the clarity of his vision and also his success when it came to embrace new technology later in life - such as with his use of digital effects in 'L'Anglaise et le duc' (The Lady and the Duke in English).

From 2 May, the Barbican is screening a Directorspective of Rohmer's work, featuring The Aviator's Wife; A Good Marriage (above); Pauline at the Beach (top); Full Moon in Paris and The Green Ray (below). In conjunction with the Barbican, Rockfort is giving away a pair of tickets to each - just contact us here titled 'Rohmer comp' to letting us know your name and which one you'd like to see before 30 April and we'll draw winners at random.
