THE AGNÈS VARDA COLLECTION VOL.2Continuing the remarkable versatility of Agnès Varda, this second collection features four more classics from the true visionary of the French New Wave.
Extra features include documentaries, short films, trailers and much more...
THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS (2008)
- Weaving photography, archive footage, scenes from her own films and present-day sequences, the legendary French auteur Agnès Varda takes us on a memorable voyage through her life, during which she confronts the joys of creation and artistic success and the pain of personal loss and ageing.
L'UNE CHANTE, L'AUTRE PAS (1977)
- One sings, the other doesn't... Agnès Varda focuses on the intertwined lives of two women brought together during the struggle of the Women’s Movement in 1970’s France. A subject that remains all too familiar with Varda, who was personally involved in feminist politics.
- Sandrine Bonnaire won a Best Actress César for her portrayal as Mona - a young and defiant drifter in this tragic story. Using a largely non-professional cast Varda recollects Mona’s story through flashbacks of those who encountered her, producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman.
JACQUOT DE NANTES (1991)
- It’s the story of a child and his obsession of pursuing his dream to become a filmmaker. How he buys his first camera, shoots his first amateur film, which marks the beginning of one of the most prestigious careers of any French director, Jacques Demy. The story is told with emotion by Agnès Varda, who shared his life for years.
