Agnes Varda: From Here to There
The much-anticipated follow up to Agnes Varda's masterful THE BEACHES OF AGNES, FROM HERE TO THERE is a five-part documentary series that chronicles the indefatigable filmmaker's travels around the world, meeting friends, artists and filmmakers for an expansive view of the global contemporary art scene. Whether in Los Angeles or St. Petersburg, Lisbon or Mexico, Varda finds herself talking with Alexander Sokurov, sharing a meal with sculptor Christian Boltanski and his partner artist Annette Messager, visiting with Chris Marker at his home, or dancing with Manoel de Oliveira. Each encounter is infused with the director’s characteristic insight, inquisitiveness and wonder. Comprised of five episodes, each approximately forty-five minutes, AGNES VARDA: FROM HERE TO THERE is a joyous celebration of life, art and people.
