Varda by Agnès


Don’t miss The Loft Cinema’s March retrospective series, The Films of Agnes Varda: Part Deux, featuring classic features and shorts from the Oscar-winning director!

“A breathtaking self-portrait of an artist at the height of her powers.” – Travis Jeppesen, Artforum

The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the Oscar-winning director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, she acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films (including such classics as La Pointe Courte, Cleo from 5 to 7 and The Gleaners and I), 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—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. (Dir. by Agnès Varda, 2019, France, in English/French with English subtitles, 120 mins., Not Rated)
