Repertory Series ArchiveVarda Rarities


Double Feature with DAGUERRÉOTYPES (5:00, 9:00)

2004 • dir Agnès Varda • 96 min • DCP

This triptych of Varda’s short films explores the power and vitality of the photograph. In Ulysses (1982), she reunites with the subjects of a mysterious photo taken long ago. In the breathtaking, Salut les Cubains (1963), Varda sequences a series of pictures shot during a trip to Castro’s Cuba, including a thrilling Chris Marker-esque moment when a singer’s performance suddenly comes to life before our eyes. In Ydessa, the Bears and etc. (2004), the filmmaker interviews a photographer whose work feature people with teddy bears.

“A masterful collection of cinematic essays, Agnes Varda’s triptych of short films takes its audience from elation to despair and back again.”
– Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
