Synopsis

Fresno Filmworks presents “Varda by Agnès,” an autobiographical documentary by the legendary French New Wave director Agnès Varda. Filmworks fans will remember Varda from our 2018 screening of “Faces Places,” the playful film she co-directed with French photographer and street artist JR. Varda remained a remarkable and fascinating storyteller until her passing, and this documentary sheds light on her experience as a director and takes the audience through her past in her own way. The late director shares personal insights into her methods of photography, filmmaking, and cinematic writing. “Varda by Agnès” is a reflection on life as well as a farewell. In French with English subtitles.
Assistive listening services are not available for this film.
