For long stretches of her career, Agnès Varda lacked the exposure she deserved.

Pierre-Henri Gibert, a documentarian specialising in cinema history, chronicles her expansive career in this documentary (premiered earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival). The documentary conducts intimate interviews with Varda’s family members, friends, and co-conspirators, while uncovering rare archival material. Gibert brings deeper context to the personal factors that fed into her work, including her long and complex relationship with filmmaker Jacques Demy.
