  • Description

    Beaches have always been important to Agnès Varda, as she would travel to the seaside every Easter and summer throughout her childhood. During the Second World War she was exiled in the costal town of Sète, a period she recalls with fondness as a time of endless fun. Returning to Sète during the late 50's, she would use the locale and the local fishermen as the backdrop for her remarkable first feature film, La Pointe Courte.

    In THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS, Varda returns once more to the beaches, using her early memories of the coast as a springboard for the film’s meditation on her youth.

    Weaving photography, archive footage, scenes from her own films and present-day sequences, Varda takes us on a memorable voyage through her life, during which she confronts the joy of creation and the pain of personal loss, death and aging. It is a singular trip played out against the stirring backdrop of the post-war explosion of cultural expression in France. She knew everyone: the French New Wave set (she was married to Jacques Demy), the Black Panthers in California and even Jim Morrison, who would visit Agnès when he was in Paris. Idiosyncratic, engaging and deeply moving, THE BEACHES OF AGNÈS is the autobiography of a magnificent artist and a woman of vital curiosity.
