Agnès Varda: Screen Talk

11 Feb 2015

Agnès Varda was recently awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the European Film Academy for her outstanding body of work. An outspoken feminist throughout her career, Varda, now 86, has created some of the most interesting female protagonists in 20th-century cinema. In a rare visit to the UK, Agnès Varda presents an illustrated lecture exploring her screen career illustrated with extracts from her films.

This special Brighton Festival event complements a short selection of films - her rarely seen debut La Pointe Courte, her five-part series for French television, From Here to There and her first full-length feature film Vagabond.
