On Friday, August 2 at 5:50pm, the Norton Simon Museum will be hosting a screening of Agnès Varda's Vagabond, beginning with an introduction by film critic Peter Rainer.

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 is a stunner, and won Varda the top prize at the Venice Film Festival.

The film screening is free with museum admission, no reservations needed. Doors open 30 minutes prior to the screening.
