Varda has always possessed a warm and compulsively watchable screen presence, and the pint-sized iconoclast still has more pep in her step than most of us have ever had.

This film is part of our Foreign Focus series.
Director: Agnès Varda
In this delightful new work from legendary filmmaker Agnè s Varda, the ever-curious and effervescent filmmaker sets off across the French countryside photographing residents in a mobile photobooth. Intended to protect each subject from the “hole of memory,” the project also unites Varda with a young photographer named JR, with whom she develops a captivating and charming bond. At 88 year old, the petite Belgian auteur enjoys the status of one of cinema’s giants, and her most recent work is a must see. Winner of the Golden Eye Documentary prize at the 2017 Cannes film festival.
