The Restless Curiosity of Agnès Varda

At once impish and wise, Varda acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging.

Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved—Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema's most luminous talents.

"It's the ultimate testament to her curiosity, both about the form of cinema and the people she used it to document, that she still managed to find new applications for her technique even when putting it under a microscope. The film is just as much a restless, vibrant and inventive multimedia collage as her other documentary works."—Marshall Shaffer, Slash Film
