Curzon Artificial Eye presents GLEANING TRUTHS: THE FILMS OF AGNES VARDA (aka VARDARAMA!)
Revered for her bold political and autobiographically inspired work, Agnès Varda is a seminal feminist filmmaker and matriarch of the French New Wave. Her influential career began in the 1950s with La Pointe Courte – often considered the unofficial first film of the New Wave – and continues seven decades later, as in 2017 she became the first female director to be awarded an honorary Oscar.
To mark the release of her new film FACES PLACES (released 21 September 2018) and her 90th birthday, Curzon Artificial Eye are releasing brand new 4k version of 8 of her films, available to be screened in September for Scalarama and Directed by Women.
Check out their Gleaning Truths site for more info, essays and their beautiful trailer.
