Varda: A Retrospective at Film at Lincoln Center

"Varda by Agnès" by Agnès Varda

Film at Lincoln Center announces the complete schedule for Varda, a career-spanning retrospective of Agnès Varda, presented in partnership with Janus Films. The trailblazing filmmaker’s final work, Varda by Agnès, opens theatrically at FLC on November 22. 

In 1955, Agnès Varda kickstarted the French New Wave with her debut feature La Pointe Courte, and for the next six decades she remained at the cutting edge of international cinema, continuing to innovate, experiment, and explore right up until her death earlier this year at age 90. An eternal free spirit, Varda used the camera as an extension of herself, synthesizing the things that captured her restless imagination. Moving between narrative and documentary (and hybrids of the two), film and video, photography and installation works, she remained, at each step of her career, inimitably herself: playful, probing, empathetic, wise, and inexhaustibly curious about the world whirling around her. 

The Film at Lincoln Center retrospective kicks off a nationwide tour; variations of the program will screen at various locations in Berkeley, San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston, Seattle,  Denver, Portland, Houston, Vancouver, Louisville, Bryn Mawr, and the tour will conclude in Los Angeles.


Film Schedule

All screenings take place at the Walter Reade Theater (165 W 65th St) unless otherwise noted.
