NLCD: Varda by Agnès

In what proved to be her final film, feminist icon, pioneer and legendary French filmmaker Agnes Varda’s brand new self-portrait is a rewarding and highly charming journey through her imaginative life's opus.

In March this year we lost one of cinema’s most iconic figures. Whether in front of the camera or behind it, Agnès Varda was a visual storyteller who eschewed convention and the more prescribed approaches to drama. In this - her final film — she looks back at her life and her many films in a generous and imaginative self-portrait, consisting of monologues in front of an audience and wonderful extracts from her work to illustrate her unique artistic visions and ideas. Few other filmmakers have cultivated imagination, freedom and community like Varda has, and we are in truly charming and thoroughly inspiring company throughout.

An enriching, entertaining and thought-provoking experience, it will make you want to see all of her many wonderful films again. And if you’re new to the world of Agnes Varda, this is the perfect place to start.
