Les glaneurs et la glaneuse = The gleaners and I by Agnès Varda( Visual )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These two documentary films focus on gleaners, those who gather the spoils left after a harvest, as well as those who mine the trash. They are an intimate, picaresque inquiry into French life as lived by the country's poor and its provident, as well as by the film's own director, Agnes Varda. Some completely exist on the leavings; others turn them into art, exercise their ethics, or simply have fun. The director likens gleaning to her own profession: that of collecting images, stories, fragments of sound, light, and colour

Jacquot by Agnès Varda( Visual )

59 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacquot is director Agnès Varda's touching tribute to her late husband, visionary director Jacques Demy. From an early age, little Jacques, known as Jacquot, is in love with the movies. Starting with puppet shows in his family's garage, he begins his quest to become a filmmaker. At the age of seven, against the backdrop of Nazi-occupied France, Jacquot trades his toys for his first movie camera. Intercut with these loving memories of childhood are scenes of Demy's later films, showing the extraordinary way in which ordinary life influenced his works

Loin du Việt-Nam = Far from Vietnam by Chris Marker( Visual )

11 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the work of a number of filmmakers who were opposed to the U.S. involvement in Vietnam but to varying degrees and for varying reasons. The fragmentary structure of at least seventeen different sections has been shaped by Marker so that the final effect is quite open-ended and coherent. At the centre is the sense of European impotence in the context of the war
Cinevardaphoto( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Agnès Varda comes the wonderful Cinevardaphoto, a triptych of short films exploring the power and vitality of the photograph. In Ydessa, the bears, and etc., Varda discovers a haunting exhibit of found photos; in each one, a teddy bear. With Ulysses, she deconstructs a picture from her early career as a photographer, while ... Salut les cubains uses still photos to capture the spirit of the Cuban Revolution's early days."--Container
One sings, the other doesn't by Agnès Varda( Visual )

30 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in French and English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varda's feminist narrative charts the friendship of two young women, of differing backgrounds and temperaments, over a period of fourteen years as each seeks to take control of her destiny and attain contentment. Pauline, aged 17, helps her friend Suzanne, 22, and the unmarried mother of two children, procure an abortion. Pauline becomes a singer, travels the world and has children by her Iranian lover. Suzanne returns to her parents' farm, educates herself and assumes the directorship of a family planning clinic. The two women meet ten years later at an anti-abortion demonstration and again twelve years after that, having kept in contact during the interim. Varda's film, marking the director's return after a nine-year hiatus from features, takes its theme from a maxim attributed to Simone de Beauvoir: "Women are made, not born." (Does not circulate)

Daguerréotypes by Agnès Varda( Visual )

16 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rue Daguerre in Paris is named after Louis Daguerre, the inventor of the first practical process of photography, who also gave his name to the first formal photographic portraits, the daguerreotypes. A typical Parisian street, not far from Montparnasse, it is here that film director Agnés Varda lives. Gently observing the daily routine of the shopkeepers who live and trade between nos. 70 and 90, she has made the modern equivalent of a daguerreotype. Through her eyes we see the day-to-day existence of her neighbours, focussing on the work they do within this self-contained world. Intercut between these sympathetic observations are extracts from a magician's performance, held at a local café
