Agnès Varda, 1976. 80 min. DCP VOSTA. Restored Version.
In French with English subtitles.
This freewheeling portrait of the storekeepers on one block of Rue Daguerre, the street Varda has called home since the 1950s, is both a charming time capsule of Paris in a bygone era and a wry meditation on what makes up a neighborhood. Originally a television commission, the film stands as a prime example of Varda’s commitment to making deeply personal work, full of poetic and political insights, no matter how apparently banal the subject. Culminating with a memorable neighborhood magic show, Daguerréotypes reveals that there is nothing ordinary about the ordinary.

Series curated by Agnès and Rosalie Varda, Olivier Renaud-Clément, and Delphine Selles-Alvarez.
