(Les plages d'Agnès) Director: Agnès Varda, F, 2008, French version / English subtitles, 110 min

The film will be introduced by Michal Bregant (director of the National Film Archive) and David Čeněk (film historian), moderated by Marek Hovorka (director of the International Documentary Film Festival Jihlava).

Returning to the beaches that have been parts of her life, Agnès Varda invents a kind of self-portrait-documentary. Agnès stages herself among excerpts of her films, images and reportages. She shares with humor and emotion her beginnings as stage photographer, then early filmmaker of the French New Wave, her life with Jacques Demy, her feminism, her trips to Cuba, China and the USA, her life as independent producer and her family. A free and curious woman!


Agnès Varda created a stir by participating in the creation of the script for the erotic film Last Tango in Paris. Her creative film Cléo from 5 to 7 is considered one of the gems of the French New Wave. Varda herself is against categorising. In her films, she focuses on topics such as sex, ageing, death and breaking social taboos. Read more here.

The screening is held in partnership with Doc Alliance Films and the French Institute.
