Jacques Demy was one of the big guns of the French New Wave. His style was distinct from those of his colleagues, who included Godard and Truffaut. For some reason, in this place his name does not have the "pull" characteristic for the others'. A peculiar situation, one which we hope to set to rights. After this you will have something to talk about, at those discussions.
