A complete anthology of Agnès Varda’s films is being released

The collection of the French New Wave icon’s features, documentaries, and shorts, will arrive this summer

A complete anthology of Agnès Varda’s films is set to be released, including the French New Wave pioneer’s acclaimed features, deep cuts, shorts, and documentaries. 

The Criterion Collection release will feature introductions to the films by Varda herself, who passed away last year, aged 90. 

Also included in the box set will be behind-the-scenes and unreleased footage, archival interviews with family, friends, and collaborators, and a 200-page book featuring essays on the director’s life and work.

After her death in March 2019, fans of Agnès Varda left heart-shaped potatoes in a fitting shrine outside her Paris home, to pay tribute to the late director, her radical filmmaking, and her tireless feminist spirit. Practically up until her death, she remained active in her work, premiering her final film, Varda by Agnès, at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival.

The Complete Films of Agnès Varda will arrive August 11, 2020. Watch the trailer below.
