VARDA BY AGNES
THURSDAY, JANUARY 16 2020
THE VERGE CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Doors @7pm / Film @7:30pm
DON'T MISS our first rendez-vous of the year, Thursday, January 16 with the special screening of legendary Agnès Varda’s last film, VARDA BY AGNES (Varda Par Agnès) in partnership with and taking place at the Verge Center for the Arts.
The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a playful, profound, and personal "masterclass" encompassing her six-decade artistic journey. Mischievous and wise, she guides us on a tour through her brilliant career, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works, while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging.
Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved (her husband Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes,...) this wonderfully distinctive work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents. Watch the trailer here.
Last week, Le Professeur Kevin Elstob met with SFFF regular and Francois Ozon's official English subtitler, Sionnan O'Neill, who has subtitled several of Varda's works, including this last one. Their conversation -recorded at The Verge, on Tuesday, January 7th- will be presented prior to the film on Thursday evening. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Le Prof Kevin Elstob.
