Agnès Varda has a particularly strong eye for portraying social movements, various cultures and overlooked communities. How do her personal, social commitments and her ethnographic aesthetic inform her fiction work? How does she combine political engagement with a playful approach? Join our guest speakers to examine this particular aspect of Varda’s oeuvre.
'This June we honour the trailblazing women of yesterday, today and tomorrow with major retrospectives and events at BFI Southbank. Join us as we pay tribute to those who transcend their worlds to expand ours.'
