Varda by Agnès

Agnès Varda—professional photographer, installation artist, and pioneer of the Nouvelle Vague—is an institution of French cinema, and yet she fiercely opposes institutional thinking of any kind. This film offers insights into her oeuvre, using excerpts from her work to illustrate her artistic vision. Revisiting over 60 years of personal and professional life, Varda takes us on a journey through her world of unorthodox images.
