Varda by Agnès

Agnès Varda

Whether behind the camera, or in front of it as she often was, Agnès Varda always defied a conventional approach. In her final work, the multi-award-winning filmmaker takes the audience on a journey through her remarkable life and career in her characteristically open and contemplative yet playful way.

"An unmissable self-portrait of a talent with an uncompromising vision."

Recordings of public appearances and conversations with her collaborators are weaved in with film clips and installation footage as we’re guided through her oeuvre, and we get to hear her reflections on the creative process and her work as a photographer, filmmaker and installation artist.

Full of illuminating wisdom, moving stories and amusing anecdotes, this is an unmissable self-portrait of a talent with an uncompromising vision, a deep curiosity and empathy for other people – ‘real people’ – and a spirited, life-affirming outlook.
