Agnès Varda

She is one of the most influential and recognized directors in the history of cinema. Her avant-garde style and feminist point of view were far ahead of her time, spearheading the French New Wave while surpassing it in boldness and longevity. Her career covers fifty titles produced from the mid-1950s until her death in 2019. Agnès Varda’s work was born from her vocation as a photographer, and that creative independence extends to her films, which range from domestic documentaries to international productions.
