Pioneering filmmaker Agnès Varda has spent more than 50 years making radical films and art installations at the intersection of fiction, documentary, and autobiography.
This March, we pay special tribute to her perpetually influential and inventive work with three rarely-screened films from her œuvre: Daguerréotypes, Jacquot de Nantes, and her late husband Jacques Demy’s debut film Lola, featuring an original song by Varda.
Films in French with English subtitles. In the spirit of the French ciné-clubs and literary salons, each screening will be followed by a wine & beer reception. 7:30pm screenings are introduced by by a high-profile personality in the arts.
Additionally, Agnès Varda will be at FIAF on February 28 for a special talk about her recent turn towards visual art.
Note: No CinéSalon screenings on February 28 & March 28
