Repertory Series Archive(Some of) The Best of 2019

Varda by Agnès

Double Feature with PAIN AND GLORY (4:00, 9:00)

2019 • dir Agnès Varda • 115 min • DCP

The final film from legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda begins as a masterclass held by the director discussing her life and career. Soon the camera breaks out of the lecture hall and we follow Varda as she revisits the settings and subjects of some of her greatest films. As impishly delightful and endlessly curious as Varda herself, VARDA BY AGNÈS stands as a wonderful, self-made tribute to this remarkable director who sadly passed away in 2019. Consider this an appetizer for the VARDA RARITIES series we have coming up on January 31.

“It’s a perfect introduction and a lovely valediction.”
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“Both an excellent primer for newcomers, and a wonderful parting gift for longtime fans (…) The perfect way for the legendary auteur to have the last word.”
– David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“Devotees and newbies alike will reap what Varda has sown.”
– Aimee Knight, Little White Lies

“The result is a grand, warmhearted testament to her lifetime of creative connections, her art of self-transformation, and her relentless transformation of the art of cinema itself.”
– Richard Brody, New Yorker
