Agnes Varda

  • French director
  • Born May 30, 1928

Agnès Varda (French: [aɲɛs vaʁda]; born 30 May 1928) is a Belgian-born French film director. Her films, photographs, and art installations focus on documentary realism, feminist issues, and social commentary with a distinctive experimental style. She has spent most of her working life in France. Film historians have cited Varda's work as central to the development of the French New Wave; her employment of location shooting and non-professional actors were unconventional in the context of 1950s French cinema.


I had flops, I had success.




I'm not interested in seeing a film just made by a woman - not unless she is looking for new images.




Hands are the tool of the painter, the artist.
