Jane B. for Agnès V.
Jane B. par Agnès V.
Agnès Varda collaborated with iconic performer Jane Birkin on this creative ‘imaginary biopic.’
Dir Agnès Varda
This innovative portrait of British-French actor and singer Jane Birkin was made in the lead-up to her 40th birthday. The ‘imaginary biopic,’ as Varda called it, shows Birkin in private moments that offer a glimpse into her personal life, and fictionalised scenes that play to viewers’ expectations of Birkin as a star. Together, the two women reflect on what it means to be a cultural icon, explore the creative actor-director relationship, and examine how women are often portrayed on screen.
