The Beaches of Agnès

“A great, loving, uplifting film.” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)

“If we opened people up, we’d find landscapes. If we opened me up, we’d find beaches,” Varda once said. Turning the camera on herself with the coasts of France and Belgium as a backdrop, Varda shares and reenacts moments from her past, examining both her successes and failures while maintaining a loose connection to history and finding new ways to express herself. Equal parts playful, surprising, and profound, The Beaches of Agnès is a richly imaginative self-portrait that touches on everything from feminism and the Black Panthers to the birth of the French New Wave. Winner, César Award for Best Documentary.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

This film is part of the Varda: A Retrospective series.
