Celebration of mankind's diversity

Varda by Agnès
Regissør: Agnès Varda
(Frankrike)

AGNÈS VARDA: Den nye franske bølgens filmpioner og feminist reflekterer over sin karriere og formidler en humanistisk livsfilosofi.

The question "Where are all the female directors?" Is being asked more and more often in an industry that has only now become aware of its own gender bias. And this marks a shift, after decades of single-tracked attention to the canonized male directors. Along with demands that more needs to be done to equalize the differences, through support for women-led film productions, the film history is rewritten: Female filmmakers who have not earned their spot in the limelight are now emerging so that a new generation can have enjoy their art.

Vital outbreak

It is only now that Agnès Varda has become the subject of public admiration. She was essential to the development of the "new French wave" in the late 50s – and one of the first female cinematographers to make a mark on European art films. In 2018, she was finally accepted into the Oscar heat, as the oldest nominee in history, for the road movie documentary Faces, Places (2017). When she arrived at the award ceremony wearing silk pajamas and with her distinctive punk, two-tone hair weave, it hailed with enthusiastic kind words on Twitter.
