Today, actress Anna Karina attended a Master Class during the 13th Pusan International Film Festival at Grand Hotel in Busan, South Korea. The biggest film festival in Asia showcases 315 films from 60 countries.

Then, in 1969, Karina was on set shooting Justine, directed by George Cukor and Joseph Strick and she had been divorced from director Jean-Luc Godard for two years.  This seven year romance was accompanied by her participation in at least six of his films, including Une femme est une femme and Pierrot le fou.   Karina had a unenviable childhood, traded by grandparents, foster parents and her mother.  She started her career as an actress and singer in her native Denmark, later moving to Paris at 17 where she befriended Coco Chanel and Pierre Cardin and began modeling.  Karina has always had a bewitching presence on screen and anyone who relishes the modish styles of the mid to late 1960′s will appreciate the bohemian tinged glamour Karina embraces.  Let her filmography guide your vintage inspiration this weekend.  Let her photos take you back now.
