Les Plages d'Agnès



Returning to the beaches which have been parts of her life, Varda invents a kind of self-portrait-documentary. Agnès stages herself among excerpts of her films, images and reportages. She shares with humour and emotion her beginnings as stage photographer, then as early filmmaker of the French New Wave, her life with Jacques Demy, her feminism, her trips to Cuba, China and the USA, her life as independent producer and her family life. A free and curious woman!
