“In my films, I always wanted to make people see deeply. I don’t want to show things, but to give people the desire to see.” - Agnes Varda

The grande-dame of the French New Wave, and the voice behind many of cinemas most beloved works - The Gleaners and I, Cleo from 5 to 7 and the Oscar-nominated Faces Places - Agnès Varda is here defined in her own words. Brimming with priceless musings, signature wit, humour and unpredictable delights, Varda By Agnes is the final punctuation mark in an oeuvre of over 50 documenatries and narrative fictions - a last piece of her legacy.

Varda presented this last creation at the Berlinale a month prior to her death in 2019. Whether or not audiences are familiar with Varda's work, Varda By Agnes provides equal introduction and reflection to her lifetime of work - and is a pure joy for viewing. With signature flourishes of animation, reconstructions and archive footage, Varda reminds us “nothing is banal if you film people with empathy and love”.
