Screen/Society--"Varda by Agnès" (2019) | Agnès Varda

Film Screening:

"Varda by Agnès"
(Agnès Varda, 2019, 120 min, France, French w/ subtitles, Color, DCP)

The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director's own career. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved-Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes-this idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warm and bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema's most luminous talents.

"Varda by Agnès may be a summing up from one end of a long, beautiful life in art. But it has the lightness, curiosity and spirit of a first film, and that tells us who Varda the artist was too: ever inspired, ever creating, ever eager to share." -- Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
