Varda par Agnès
Directors: Agnès Varda, Didier Rouget
Whether in front of the camera or behind it, Agnès Varda is a visual storyteller who eschews convention and prescribed approaches to drama. Together with some of her fellow travelers, she takes the audience on a journey through her world of unorthodox images. She offers insights into her oeuvre, using excerpts from her work to illustrate – more associatively than chronologically – her artistic visions and ideas.
She tells us: “In 1994, with a retro at the French Cinémathèque, I published a book entitled VARDA BY AGNÈS. 25 years later, the same title is given to my film made of moving images and words, with the same project: give keys about my body of work. I give my own keys, my thoughts, nothing pretentious, just keys. I've made a wide variety of films in my life. So I need to tell you what led me to do this work for so many years. Three words are important to me: Inspiration, creation, sharing...”
Curator's point of view: An exclusive chance to listen to the life-long experience of the French cinema legend in her own narration illustrated by clips from her iconic films.
