Dir. Agnès Varda, 1955, France, 76 min (PG)

A stylised depiction of the complexities of marriage set against the backdrop of a Mediterranean fishing village. Considered one of the progenitors of the French New Wave, Varda’s debut film is a documentary-style look at daily life.

Over six decades, multi-award winning Agnès Varda has established herself at the vanguard of world cinema, directing over 50 films, shorts and documentaries. Alongside presenting a newly commissioned work for the Biennial, FACT and Picturehouse present weekly screenings of the works of Agnès Varda, and a personally curated set of films to accompany her own. The film programme is accompanied by a wide range of talks, live events and Q&As, offering a variety of approaches into the themes and subjects covered by the films.

Agnès Varda: Pioneer is presented in partnership between FACT, Liverpool Biennial, Picturehouse, BFI and University of Liverpool
