Varda according to Agnès is a documentary in the form of master class of cinema for future generations. At the end of her long and creative life, she was too tired of traveling around the world, interviews, conferences and meetings. She was also tired of talking about herself, she always preferred to give the floor to characters who were not interesting for anyone. She reached for her favorite medium - film. Varda according Agnès is symbolically divided into two parts, devoted to the analog years of the 20th century and the digital years of the 21st century. Varda looks back on her career and the film is a kind of her last will for posterity. Agnès Varda died in Paris on March 29, 2019.

Agnès Varda (1928-2019) She studied in Paris at the École du Louvre and took evening classes in photography at the École de Vaugirard. Varda became a photographer for Jean Vilar when he founded the Avignon theater festival in 1948, then for the Théâtre National Populaire at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris. She held her first personal exhibition in 1954 in the courtyard of her home. That same year, Varda made the move to cinema without any formal training. She founded a cooperative Ciné-Tamaris to produce and direct her first feature, La Pointe Courte, which has earned her the title "Grandmother of the French New Wave." She has directed short films and features, both fiction and documentaries. In 2003, she began her third career as a visual artist at the Venice Biennale. Varda has received numerous awards, including the Silver Bear at the Berlinale for “Happiness”, and an honorary Palme d'Or at Cannes in 2015.
