Artist, feminist and filmmaker extraordinaire. Grandmother
of the French New Wave. A deeply thoughtful and vibrantly playful creator, Agnès
Varda is all of these things. 64 years since her first film hit cinemas and
alongside the release of her latest film, we celebrate the bountiful and
beautiful career of one of cinema’s greatest treasures.
The dawn of the French New Wave (La Nouvelle Vague) came about with the arrival
of new technologies. Lighter, portable cameras allowed new and inspired young
filmmakers to pick up a camera and shoot, creating films for a fraction of the
cost of studio pictures: a democratisation of the film industry. A forerunner of this movement was Agnès Varda’s
debut – La Pointe Courte. Its creation, and her liberated, expressive
style of filmmaking could draw comparisons to current independent filmmakers,
like Sean Baker picking up an iPhone and exploding onto the festival circuit
Varda’s body of work continues to be bold and bright. She often steps in front
of the camera, reflecting on herself as much as she does the world around her.
Her films are uniquely personal and her soul shines brightly through each. A
self-dubbed ‘joyful feminist’ Varda’s work mixes her politics with all of the
fun and laughter of life.
Our season presents eight of Agnès Varda’s most beloved films from Curzon
Artificial Eye’s national retrospective ‘Gleaning Truths’. In the year
of her Honorary Oscar, we are celebrating and shining light on of one of cinema
history’s most influential female filmmakers: a trailblazer of French cinema and
a truly delightful character.
