The Beaches of Agnès

DIRECTOR: Agnès Varda - France

Since the 1960s Agnès Varda has been making her idiosyncratic and beautiful films, and is honored as "the grandmother of the French New Wave."  In The Beaches of Agnès, which she declares is her last film, Varda turns her camera on herself, returning to the beaches which have played such a significant part in her life and her films.  "If you opened people up, you would find landscapes; if you opened me up, you would find beaches. Many old people wish to tell their life.  As an old filmmaker, with the enthusiasm and energy of my youth, I tried to find a style and a form to tell my memories, my encounters, the ups and downs of my life.  I shot my film as a kaleidoscope, a collage, a fantasy." --Agnès Varda.

Selected Filmography: Cléo From 5 to 7 (62), Le Bonheur (65), Jacquot de Nantes (91), The Gleaners and I (00), Cinévardaphoto (04).
