Varda by Agnès

French cinema institution Agnès Varda’s final film, which premiered a month before she died, looks back at her exceptional life and career.

"A fitting tribute to Varda's innovative and genre-defying approach, Varda by Agnès combines clips from her films and dramatised reconstructions, along with Varda's own priceless musings. Since her debut feature in 1961 (La Point Courte) the auteur has crafted singular narrative films and documentaries (including the Oscar-nominated Faces Places in 2017). Her legacy is profound and far-reaching. While there's sadness at her loss to the living world, it's an absolute pleasure to spend time with this eternally playful filmmaker as she yet again blurs the line between fact and fiction – keeping audiences on their cinematic toes." (Sydney Film Festival)

Slight as a Varda film, but shot through with its maker's characteristic pluck and whimsy, "Varda by Agnès" gives her newly recruited fans everything they've come to see.

As Varda's physical strength diminishes, and she gives us an ending that very much feels like a goodbye, she goes out by handing us an index to her case studies in how to spread creativity into the world.
