 Les Plages d’Agnès

Agnès Varda’s films, photographs, and art installations focuse on documentary realism, feminist issues, and social commentary with a distinctive experimental style. 

Film historians have cited Varda's work as central to the development of the French New Wave; her employment of location shooting and non-professional actors were unconventional in the context of 1950s French cinema.[2] Among other awards and nominations over her career, she received honorary Palme d'or and Academy Awards, won a Golden Lion and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
