Who is Agnès Varda? -
Salut à tou.te.s,
Between documentaries and fiction films, Agnès Varda invented her own contemplative and poetic style at a time where classicism was the only option in cinema. Her first film in 1955 marked the beginning of a new era in France called la "Nouvelle Vague". Since then, she never stopped surprising her audience until she passed away in 2020.
Watch the short video about Agnès Varda (subtitles are available in French and English by clicking on the CC button on the YouTube control bar)
If you have more time, try to watch one of her films. (Tip: she made tons of short films too 😉). I will have watched "Visages, Villages" for Tuesday and "Jane B. par Agnès V." for Sunday
