French with English subtitles

The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, she acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, 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—Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.


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.
