Book Soup presents Matt Severson and Peter Debruge on 'Agnès Varda: Director’s Inspiration'

Thursday, January 25 at 7 PM, Book Soup presents Agnès Varda: Director’s Inspiration editor Matt Severson and essayist and Variety Chief Film Critic Peter Debruge in conversation about the trailblazing French filmmaker who broke new artistic and cinematic ground for nearly seven decades.

Although closely associated with the French New Wave, Agnès Varda established her groundbreaking visual style in her 1955 debut film La Pointe Courte, well before other milestones such as François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless. Varda impacted cinema from her first feature film through her final works, with an expansive oeuvre that includes Cleo from 5 to 7 (1962), Vagabond (1985) and the Academy Award-nominated Faces Places (2017).

Agnès Varda: Director’s Inspiration presents the first English-language visual showcase for Varda's inspirations, art and personal life, incorporating original materials from her personal archive on rue Daguerre. The book covers Varda's "three lives"—as photographer, filmmaker and visual artist—and features a previously unpublished interview Varda gave to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on the eve of receiving her Honorary Oscar in 2017. Essays by author Sasha Archibald and film critic Peter Debruge examine facets of Varda's creative lives, and personal reflections by friends and colleagues illustrate what it was like to collaborate with and be inspired by Varda.
