Hyun Lee French Girls film screening

February 28, 2017

Women in The Arts are delighted to be premiering FRENCH GIRLS by Sydney director Hyun Lee. Showing at part of the Down / Under Space film program, FRENCH GIRLS will be accompanied by a screening of feature film My Life to Live (Vivre sa vie) by Jean-Luc Godard.


Anya is a fashion model. Her job doesn’t require her to do much, in fact it specifically requires her to do nothing, while others do it for her. It may seem easy, but doing nothing is actually quite exhausting. Doing something, anything, is even more difficult.

FRENCH GIRLS is a short film written and directed by Hyun Lee. A recipient of the Screen NSW: Emerging Filmmakers’ Fund, she is working on a new short film ASIAN GIRLS, currently in pre-production.


Anna Karina was 19 years old when she moved to Paris to pursue a career in acting. After many failed stints and bordering on poverty, she was discovered at a cafe and launched into a modelling career which then lead to a career in acting. She became the muse of director Jean Luc Godard, starring in his film Vivre Sa Vie (My Life to Live) which largely inspired by Karina’s own life, tells an alternate story: The young aspiring actress doesn’t succeed in becoming a famous model and muse. Instead, she is forced down a path of prostitution.
