Varda by Agnès

Varda by Agnès

Philadelphia, PA
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 ...

Jacquot de Nantes

Jacquot de Nantes

Philadelphia, PA
Agnès Varda’s tender evocation of the childhood of her husband, Jacques Demy—a dream project of his that she realized when he became too ill to direct the film himself—is a wonder-filled portrait of the artist as a young man and an enchanting ode to the magic of cinema. Shot in Demy’s hometown of...

Mur Murs

Mur Murs

Philadelphia, PA
After returning to Los Angeles from France in 1979, Agnès Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city.

Daguerréotypes

Daguerréotypes

Turning her lens on the inhabitants of Rue Daguerre, the street where she lives, Varda documents daily life as local merchants and patrons intersect in a ritual of commerce and camaraderie.

Lions Love (...and Lies)

Lions Love (...and Lies)

The Beaches of Agnes

The Beaches of Agnes

Philadelphia, PA
“If we opened people up, we’d find landscapes. If we opened me up, we’d find beaches.” Originally intended to be Agnès Varda’s farewell to filmmaking, this enchanting self-portrait, made in her eightieth year, is a freewheeling journey through her life, career, and artistic philosophy. Revisiting...

Beyond the Visible - Hilma af Klint

Beyond the Visible - Hilma af Klint

Philadelphia, PA
Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting...
