When 2017 Honorary Academy Award-winner Agnès Varda died earlier this year at age 90, the world lost one of its most inspirational cinematic radicals.
“Both an excellent primer for newcomers, and a wonderful parting gift for longtime fans … The perfect way for the legendary auteur to have the last word.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire
From her neorealist-tinged 1954 feature debut La Pointe Courte to her New Wave treasures Cléo from 5 to 7 and Le Bonheur to her inquiries into those on society’s outskirts like Vagabond, The Gleaners and I, and the 2017 Oscar nominee Faces Places, she made enduring films that were both forthrightly political and gratifyingly mercurial, and which toggled between fiction and documentary decades before it was more commonplace in art cinema. In what would be her final work, partially constructed of onstage interviews and lectures, interspersed with a wealth of clips and archival footage, Varda guides us through her career, from her movies to her remarkable still photography to the delightful and creative installation work. It’s a fitting farewell to a filmmaker, told in her own words. (Dir. by Agnès Varda, 2019, France, in French with English subtitles, 120 mins., Not Rated) Other festivals: Berlin, New York
