While on an excursion in New Guinea to procure rare feathers, Vivian (Bulle Ogier), a French diplomat’s wife, joins a band of vagabond hippies on a quest to discover an uncharted, utopian valley. As the bourgeois Vivian delights in the new pleasures of free love and consciousness-expanding drugs, she believes she has found paradise. But is it just an illusion? Suffused with cosmic mystery—enhanced by a trancey Pink Floyd score and stunning cinematography by Néstor Almendros, who captures the island’s lush, awe-inspiring beauty—The Valley is a hallucinatory parable of post-sixties idealism hurtling into oblivion.

Restoration Tuesdays: our new ongoing series of newly restored films is generously sponsored by IATSE 856. All admissions to these screenings is $5.
