Whether in front of the camera or behind it, Agnès Varda was a visual storyteller who eschewed convention and prescribed approaches to drama. In Varda by Agnès - Varda’s final film - she offers a personal insight into her oeuvre, using excerpts from her work to illustrate her unique artistic visions and ideas.
Why We Love It: ‘A delightful tour through the mind and works of the one and only Agnès, guided by the late great lady herself. Presented like a film essay, the doc is made from footage of a series of live talks that Varda did shortly before she died, overviewing her creative worldview, with tons of examples from her career. I love Varda’s mantra: “Inspiration, creation, sharing.“’ - Paul Gallagher, GFT Programme Manager
‘Two hours in this director’s company is a pleasure.’ - ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
