Varda x 3 Series
Varda by Agnès
Directed by Agnès Varda
“This is a fascinating, informative, and reflective swan song that gives Varda the final word.” —Tina Hassannia, Globe and Mail
The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, Varda acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved—her husband filmmaker Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.
A selection of the Berlin Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival. 2019, France, DCP, in French with English subtitles, 120 minutes. Recommended for 16+.
