Agnès Varda

Born in Belgium in 1928, Agnès Varda began working as a photographer for the Théâtre National Populaire, before moving into film. In 1954 she directed her first film, La Pointe courte. She built up a highly personal body of work, comprised of a wide range of film forms and subjects: documentaries (Daguerréotypes, 1976), fiction films (Cleo from 5 to 7, 1961, Vagabond, 1985), biographical portraits (The Gleaners & I, 2000, The Beaches of Agnès, 2008) and works that combine fiction and documentary (Jacquot de Nantes, 1990).
