The Beaches of Agnès
Returning to the beaches that have been part of her life, Agnès Varda invents a kind of self-portrait documentary. Varda stages herself among excerpts of her films, images and reportages. With humour and emotion, she shares her beginnings as a stage photographer, then as an early filmmaker of the French New Wave, her life with Jacques Demy, her feminism, her trips to Cuba, China and the US, her life as an independent producer and her family life. A free and curious woman!
