Shorts Program A: Architecture, Travel & Politics (1958–84)

This shorts package contains four documentaries Varda produced between ’58 and ’84, touching on various points of travel, political unrest, and a kind of architectural artistry many of us don’t even notice. Featured here are Du Côté de la Côte (1958, 26 m.), a satirical look at the French Riviera during the summer tourist season; Salut les Cubains (1963, 28 m.), a montage of over 1000 photographs Varda took on holiday in Cuba; Black Panthers (1968, 29 m.), Varda’s record of a group of Oakland citizens protesting the imprisonment of Huey P. Newton; and Les Dites Cariatides (1984, 12 m.), her observation of neoclassical statues found on buildings all around Paris.
