Widely considered one of the most influential filmmakers in modern French cinema, Varda briefly located to California in the late-1960s, 70s and 80s. It’s this time period that the film series, titled “Varda in California,” commemorates.

The brief years that French New Wave force Agnès Varda spent in California yielded a body of films that reflect life in America as only an outsider could see it. Chronicling the people, politics, and landscapes of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and beyond, Varda’s California works reveal an artist alternately playful, reflective, and endlessly curious about her surroundings.

“Varda in California” runs from May 31 to June 13. Check out the full schedule on BAMcinématek website.

Documenteur + Uncle Yanco


Lions Love (...and Lies)
