Viva Varda: Faces Places & Kiva Reardon on the legacy of Agnès Varda

In April 2019, we lost one of the world’s greatest filmmakers. The insatiably curious visionary who kickstarted the French New Wave, Agnès Varda made movies for seven decades, focusing the later part of her brilliant career on documentary cinema. Join us for a special celebration of Varda's life and non-fiction legacy with a screening of 2017’s Faces Places (Visages Villages). This Oscar-nominated travelogue teams her up with photographer JR as they hit the road in rural France, visiting villages and small towns to meet and pay tribute to their people and communities along the way. Charming and poignant, this moving film finds Varda as playful and inspiring as ever.

Following the screening, we will be joined by Hot Docs programmer Kiva Reardon—founder of cléo, a Toronto-based journal of film and feminism that took its name from the title of one of Agnès Varda’s most revered films—to speak about the iconic cinéaste's gift for collaboration and the radical empathy of the woman behind the camera.
