Five years before the Nouvelle Vague around Regis Truffaut, your like Francois or Jean-Luc Godard founded, revolutionized Varda the cinema.

The filmmaker said about himself: "I am curious about life. And it is interesting to be curious. I look at everything around me and find the answers. When you open, then you discover the little things that spice up the life. You just have to go with open eyes through life." to go

With open eyes through life Vardas currency.

"Everything is possible"

Angelina Jolie gave the moving Eulogy on the most well-known French film-maker:

"As Agnès started, turned it over just films that had previously made, no woman, there were movies that had never made anyone. If you Agnès, you get the feeling that the air in the room suddenly has more oxygen, the sparks are flying and you have the feeling that everything is possible."

For "moments: faces of a journey" is Varda hazards together with him in his photo-mobile by France. For Varda, JR., fulfilled her greatest wish: "He photographed the faces of the people I meet, so I don't forget you never."

Varda had an incredible energy. The source of their vigour, their enthusiasm for the cinema and her life motto, which she betrayed in her acceptance speech for the honorary Oscar in 2018:

"whenever I decide to had to had to decide between Weight and lightness, I opted for the ease. This feels like Dancing. I dance the dance of the cinema."
