Varda By Agnes – Tuesday, December 10th at 7:00pm* – Tickets!
(*RECEPTION will be held from 6:00 – 6:45pm in the Gallery for ticket-holders; film screening at 7:00pm.)
This screening is a preview of the upcoming Oklahoma French Film Festival sponsored by The Tomasino Family.
The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, she acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging.
Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved—Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.
