VARDA BY AGNESDirected by Agnès Varda, Didier Rouget
Agnès Varda, the acclaimed professional photographer, installation artist and pioneer of the Nouvelle Vague, was a cinematic institution. In this final documentary, Varda proffers a lasting lesson in discovery with humor and wit. Her lively, anecdote-rich commentary covers both the early years when as a young woman she was determined to reinvent cinema, and the later years when Varda utilized digital technology to start a new life as a visual artist. The film reads like a private master class with a beloved film legend, full of intimate insights in her oeuvre and experts from a lifetime of creation to illustrate an unparalleled artistic vision.
