For her final film, the late Agnès Varda leaves us with a playful, profound, and personal summation of the extraordinary career that earned her the title of godmother of the French New Wave. With her characteristically impish wit and wisdom, the beloved filmmaker and feminist icon leads an insightful and free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey—from classics like CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 and VOYEUR up to her more recent, Academy Award-nominated FACES PLACES. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved, this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a tender and bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.
