Jacquot de Nantes

Agnès Varda

Jacquot de Nantes is a tribute from one lover to another, a project that started out as a collaboration but became both an homage and a means of saying farewell.

A filmed chronicle of Agnès Varda's partner Jacques Demy's childhood memoirs, 'Jacquot' is a look at how the influences of youth steer a man's creative spirit. Demy died in October 1990, when production was nearing an end, and the result is a genre-busting mélange of documentary, family album, essay, memoir and elegy.

Agnès Varda

Over six decades, Agnès Varda has established herself at the vanguard of world cinema. With her training in art history and her experience as a photographer, Varda continues to push the boundaries of what cinema as an art form can achieve, creating her own singular style by blending reality with poetic imagery, and fiction with documentary. As her latest film, the Oscar-nominated documentary Faces Places, finally graces our screens, we are delighted to celebrate her long career with this showcase of Varda classics.
