Varda by Agnès at Brattle Theatre

2019 • dir Agnès Varda w/Agnès Varda, Sandrine Bonnaire • 115 min • DCP
The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, she acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved – Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes – this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.

“It’s a perfect introduction and a lovely valediction.”
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times
“Both an excellent primer for newcomers, and a wonderful parting gift for longtime fans (…) The perfect way for the legendary auteur to have the last word.”
– David Ehrlich, IndieWire
“Devotees and newbies alike will reap what Varda has sown.”
– Aimee Knight, Little White Lies
“The result is a grand, warmhearted testament to her lifetime of creative connections, her art of self-transformation, and her relentless transformation of the art of cinema itself.”
– Richard Brody, New Yorker
