Agnès Varda, Here and Elsewhere

MUBI Special

It’s always a good moment to revisit the work of the great Agnès Varda, whose vitality and insight are ever so inspiring. But especially now that the Academy has finally decided to recognise her luminous career, and with her new (wonderful!) film Faces, Places hitting cinemas in early 2018, we look back at two of her most emblematic documentaries of the 70s and 80s, testament to her signature intelligence, playfulness and human touch. And, naturally, her rabid curiosity, always palpable no matter where she is—10,000 km away from home, or at her doorstep.

Mur Murs

Agnès Varda France, 1981

If in Daguerréotypes Varda captured the charm of the mundane in her own street, Mur Murs finds the restless auteur in California for an equally lucid ethnographic exercise: tracking down anonymous street artists, using their murals as metaphor and means by which to spotlight the marginalized.

Daguerréotypes

Agnès Varda France, 1976

We celebrate that the Academy has finally recognized the luminous career of Agnès Varda, with a double bill of two of her most beloved docs. First up is this inventive portrait of her neighbourhood, described by the director herself as “an archive for the archeologists of the next century.”
