Whether in front or behind the camera, Agnès Varda was a visual storyteller who eschewed convention and prescribed imaginative approaches to cinema. In her final film, she offers a personal insight into her oeuvre, using excerpts from her work to illustrate her unique artistic visions and ideas.
The ever-inspiring Agnès Varda left with this final act of generosity. Her luminous last film offers a playful personal tour through her prolific career and the beautiful memories of a life lived fully: juxtaposing conversations with collaborators alongside dramatic, beach-set tableaux. Merci Agnès.
