How to document a single life when it is your own? French New Wave filmmaker Agnès Varda offers her memories, prompted by footage from her films. Dr Abigail Keating, who lectures on women in film, documentary and European cinemas, will discuss how Varda’s genial approach to telling her own story contrasts with other approaches to biographical film. She will consider Varda’s body of work as evidence of the filmmaker’s rich and enduring life.
Screening as part of the IFI Keeping It Real Evening Course ( Oct 4th-Nov 8th 2016) only. Film tickets not individually sold.
