Adieu Agnès Varda


A photo montage of Cubans filmed by Agnès Varda during her visit to Cuba in 1963, four years after Fidel Castro came to power. This black & white documentary explores their post-revolution culture and society while making use of 1500 pictures (out of 4000!) the filmmaker took while on the island.

Our take

Agnès Varda’s cinema came in many different shapes, as with this docu-photo-essay: a playful portrait of the island of Cuba through its people, its music, but more importantly through the reforms of the recent revolution. As much an informative historical document as an inventive and sparkling film.
