Agnes Varda book.

Agnes Varda
by Alison Smith

One of the only books in English solely about Varda and her work. It's a detailed study covering her more popular and lesser known works and explores both form and theme.


Agnes Varda (b. 30th May, 1928) was an accomplished photographer before she turned to cinema in 1955 and directed La Pointe Courte, which anticipated the production methods and aesthetics of the coming New Wave. Later she became a leading member of the movement herself with the international success of Cleo de 5 à 7 (Cleo from 5 to 7, 1962). Since then, she has worked consistently, in both documentary and drama, creating a uniquely personal cinematic legacy. Her films are notable for their stylistic freedom, their emphasis on both realism and symbolism, and their political and social comment.
