  • L’opéra-mouffe

    1968. France. Directed by Agnès Varda. 17 min.

  • The Gleaners and I

    2000. France. Directed and narrated by Agnès Varda. Varda is considered the “grandmother of the New Wave,” a filmmaker who got her start in 1954 with La Pointe Courte, edited by Alain Resnais. Best known in the U.S. for her features Vagabond (1985), One Sings, the Other Doesn’t (1976), and Jacquot (1991), Varda’s work melds literary and documentary conventions, the politics of feminism and compassion, and a special whimsy that is all her own. The Gleaners and I continues in the essayist tradition of her earlier films—a warm and witty discourse on, among other things, the nature of our consumerist society and the role of creativity in survival. In French; English subtitles. 82 min.
