The Beaches of Agnès

Buy Tickets


Double Feature with LE BONHEUR (5:30)

(2008) dir Agnès Varda w/Varda [110 min; 35mm]
A reflection on art, life, and cinema, THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS is a magnificent and richly cinematic self-portrait that touches on everything from the feminist movement and the Black Panthers to the films of husband Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) and the birth of the French New Wave.

“Varda, free from fear and shame, turns her tale of a life lived in art into a work of art in its own right, and one of her best-a rapturous tribute to life itself.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker

★★★★ “Varda recalls her childhood, her adulthood, her politics, and how both her films and her two children were born. She doesn’t just show us, she takes us inside of it all, inside of her. It’s a reverie.” – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
