Varda by Agnès

VARDA BY AGNES FINAL Play Button

Photographer, installation artist, and pioneer of the Nouvelle Vague Agnès Varda returns with a characteristically bittersweet farewell in this excitingly unpredictable documentary. From the “Queen of French Cinema” herself, this film presents footage of the auteur’s previous work and sheds light on her experiences as a director. This heartwarming piece combs through the artist’s remarkable life and career while allowing the filmmaker to have the final word on her films. Without missing a beat, Varda’s introspective take on her personal journey provides a nuanced view of life, artistry, and the pursuit of success as a trailblazer in a male-dominated field. Introduction by Alison Levine (UVA)
