Where did you watch this movie?

AgnčsVarda takes a seat on a theatre stage. This professional photographer, installation artist andpioneer of the Nouvelle Vague is an institution of French cinema but a fierce opponent of any kind ofinstitutional thinking. In this film, she offers insights into her oeuvre, using excerpts from her work toillustrate – more associatively than chronologically – her artistic visions and ideas. Her lively,anecdote-rich and clever talk is divided into two sections. Firstly, she elucidates her ‘analogue period’ from 1954 to 2000, in which the director is in the foreground. This was the young woman who set out to reinvent cinema, someone who was alwaysopen to chance and to moments of documentary, even in fiction; who, with every new film, changedher narrative style. In the second part, AgnčsVarda focuses on the years from 2000 to 2018, andshows how she uses digital technology to look at the world in her own, unique way. And started a new life as a visual artist, showing pieces that film goers have never seen.
