Film Information

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. — Janus Films

"Admirers of Agnès Varda may be looking for a fitting remembrance [while] those unfamiliar with and curious about her work may be wondering where to begin. With characteristic generosity, her final film, 'Varda by Agnès,' answers both needs. It’s a perfect introduction and a lovely valediction." — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
