WHO ARE YOU, POLLY MAGGOO? aka Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? d. William Klein, 1966 + Intro by Julie Verhoeven & Music from DJ Jonny Trunk presented by Rebel Reel Cine Club at Rio Cinema (02 MAR 18:00).

“Photographer and filmmaker William Klein’s satire on the worlds of fashion and television is the most stylish you’ll see. Beautifully shot using a variety of techniques with a cast of bonkers but recognisable characters WHO ARE YOU, POLLY MAGGOO? includes crowd scenes in 1967 Paris perfectly capturing the energy and honesty of Klein’s own street scene photographs for which he first became famous.”
