Reading, Writing, Arithmetic #33

Agnès Varda. A name synonymous with a film revolution still, astonishingly, under-recognized. A name that reminds us of rich, fluent, and oh-so varied cinema. Stayed tuned for the remainder of the Femme Filmmakers Festival, Vagabond closes the the whole affair Sunday. Anyway, I’m only rippling the surface with the following links, but click away all the same.

Agnès Varda’s Art of Being There – Richard Brody – The New Yorker

Agnes Varda, Street-Artist JR on Cannes Documentary ‘Visages Villages’ – Leo Barraclough – Variety

Meet the first female director to get an honorary Oscar – BBC Entertainment & Art

Agnès Varda: Walking Backwards Moving Forwards – Robert Barry – The Quietus

Matter, Time, and the Digital: Varda’s The Gleaners and I – Homay King – Bryn Mawr College

And to close, here is a custom made playlist, nearly 4 hours of Agnès Varda interviews and behind the scenes footage from various sources and decades.
