The Beaches of Agnes Rated 18

The Beaches of Agnes

Dir. Agnes Varda. France, 2008. 1h 53m. French/subs. Starring Agnes Varda, Andre Lubrano, Blaise Fournier, Vincent Fournier.

We pay tribute to the late great French filmmaker on what would have been her 91st birthday with a one-off screening of her playful and profound autobiographical documentary from 2008. Varda visits locations that have been important to her, exploring her memories using photographs, film clips, interviews, and reenactments with the help of a handful of nonprofessional actors.

‘Tender, truthful, happy-making: The Beaches of Agnes is a wonderful film by a wonderful woman.’ ★★★★★ Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph

‘It's impossible not to open your heart to this film.’ ★★★★ Sophie Mayer, Little White Lies
