Screen/Society--"Documenteur" (Agnes Varda, 1981)

Film Screening:

"Documenteur" (Agnès Varda, 1981, 65 min, USA/France, French w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)

The late, great Varda deemed "Documenteur" her favorite of her own films. A deeply moving, semi-autobiographical portrayal of a newly single French mother and son (played by Varda's own son Mathieu) who struggle to find a home in the unglamorous underworlds of Los Angeles - and a beautiful exploration of solitude, sensuality, tenderness, and love.
