Agnes Varda Vintage Movie Poster Original

Dear Friends & Movie Lovers:

As always, some great new acquisitions this month but first I want to acknowledge the passing of the wonderful Agnes Varda, who died March 29th at the age of 90. Varda began making films in the 1950's - a time when it was nearly impossible for a female director to be taken seriously. Just as miraculously, she was able to sustain a major career over the next six decades, all the while telling the stories she wanted to tell. Over the years, the subjects, structures, forms and style of her films changed significantly, but each was unmistakably hers.

The past few years saw a major, much-deserved and altogether delightful Varda renaissance, including her honorary Oscar and an Oscar nod for FACES/PLACES. In February, she appeared at the Berlin film festival with her final film and received an award.

In late January, I saw Agnes at an event for film fans and collectors. It was very low-key, held in an unfashionable suburb of Paris, and Agnes wasn't making any kind of official appearance - she was just there visiting a friend and hanging out with the rest of us movie-lovers. That tiny woman with the pixie haircut, a formidable, inspirational artist - open and engaged to the end. Click on the posters or here to see our Varda collection.
