TICKETS $10 MEMBER/SENIOR/STUDENT $12 GENERAL

Join Calgary Cinematheque for a retrospective series of Agnès Varda films. Using the skills she honed early in her career as a photographer, Varda created some of the most nuanced, thought-provoking films of the past fifty years.

The great Agnès Varda’s film career began with La Pointe Courte. This graceful, penetrating study of a marriage on the rocks is set against the backdrop of a small Mediterranean fishing village. Both a stylized depiction of the complicated relationship between a married couple (played by Silvia Monfort and Philippe Noiret) and a documentary-like look at the daily struggles of the locals, Varda’s discursive, gorgeously filmed debut was radical enough to later be considered one of the progenitors of the coming French New Wave.
