Agnès Varda Shorts (1968-2004)
- Friday, November 18, 2011 6:30 p.m.
This program consists of three short films highlighting various moments of Agnès Varda’s prolific career. Black Panthers (1968) is a provocative documentary showing footage of Bobby Seale and H. Rap Brown speaking at a rally to free Huey P. Newton, as well as a rare prison interview with Newton himself. Drawing attention to neoclassical statues situated throughout Paris, The So-Called Caryatids (1984) poetically contemplates the symbolic and social implications of these often overlooked works of art. Focusing on a collection of photographs, Ydessa, les ours et etc. (2004) explores the ubiquitous themes of memory, loss, and nostalgia. (35mm. French language with English subtitles.)
