Agnès Varda's Final Film
Limited Engagement! Chloe King In Person!
VARDA BY AGNÈS

Producer, screenwriter and visual artist Patricia Knop was a close friend of Agnès Varda (and can be seen in the director's THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS). This evening we pay tribute to both of them.

Introduction by Chloe King.
VARDA BY AGNÈS
2019, Janus Films, 120 min, France, Dir: Agnès Varda

The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound and personal summation of the 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, 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. “A perfect starting point for anyone who wants to understand what movies can be.” - A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
