Get yourself an Agnes Varda education (90 years old and still going strong) courtesy of Curzon Cinemas this summer. Includes screenings of her new documentary Face Places.
Revered for her bold political and autobiographically inspired work, Agnès Varda is a seminal feminist filmmaker and matriarch of French Cinema. Her influential career began in the 1950s with La Pointe Courte – often considered the first film of the New Wave – and has spanned seven decades with no sign of slowing down as she enters her 90th year.
Given her recent bestowal of the Academy Honorary Award for Outstanding Contribution to Cinema, now seems the perfect time to celebrate one of the most pioneering feminist filmmakers of all time with an extensive nationwide programme of screenings, events, as well as critical engagement across several mediums and platforms.
The Gleaning Truths programme presents with brand new digital restorations of eight of Agnès Varda’s best-known films.
