Varda by Agnès (2019)
On 29 March 2019, we lost a cinema legend when Agnès Varda passed away at the age of 90. A pioneer of the French New Wave, a socially conscious and experimental filmmaker, her career spanned over 60 remarkable years - from 1954 to this, her final film.
Varda by Agnès is delightfully done - a self-biography of sorts, in which Varda reflects on her experience as a director and playfully weaves herself through snippets of her previous films. Whether you’re a fan or a total novice, you’ll be enchanted, moved and amused throughout.
