Documenteur (1981) | Tribute to Agnès Varda (1928-2019)
(Agnès Varda, 1981, 65 min, USA/France, French w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)
The late, great Varda deemed Documenteur her favorite of her own films. A deeply moving, semi-autobiographical portrayal of a newly single French mother and son (played by Varda’s own son Mathieu) who struggle to find a home in the unglamorous underworlds of Los Angeles - and a beautiful exploration of solitude, sensuality, tenderness, and love.
Sponsored by the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image (AMI) and the Department of Romance Studies.
Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public.
