Sandrine Bonnaire won the Best Actress César for her portrayal of the defiant young drifter Mona, found frozen to death in a ditch at the beginning of Vagabond. Agnès Varda pieces together Mona’s story through flashbacks told by those who encountered her (played by a largely nonprofessional cast), producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. With its sparse, poetic imagery, Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi) is a stunner, and won Varda the top prize at the Venice Film Festival.


The late Agnés Varda (1928-2019) made over 50 films in an incredible life that saw her help spark the revolution of the French Nouvelle Vague in the 1950s and continue to inspire artists for decades through her form-bending documentary and narrative films, right up to her final months with the release of her last: Varda by Agnés. With this series of 4 films by Agnés – 3 new restorations of her classic films and her last – completed just before her death – we honour her singular voice in cinema.

Agnés Varda: Life is Cinema is presented in partnership with Cinémental, Alliance Française du Manitoba and the French Embassy of Canada. Restoration Tuesdays: our new ongoing series of newly restored films is generously sponsored by IATSE 856. All admissions to these screenings is $5.
