Les glaneurs et la glaneuse The gleaners and I ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in French and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Varda's most recent effort-- the first filmed with a digital videocamera-- focuses on gleaners, those who gather the spoils left after a harvest, as well as those who mine the trash. 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 color."--Www.imdb.com
Les plages d'Agnès The beaches of Agnès ( Visual )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in French and English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An autobiographical reflection on art, life and the movies from director Agnès Varda. Varda takes beaches as her point of departure, and weaves photographs, vintage footage, film clips, and present-day sequences into a memorable voyage through her life, during which she confronts the joy of creation and the pain of personal loss, death and aging. It is a singular trip played out against the exciting context of the postwar explosion of cultural expression in France. She knew everyone: her colleagues in the French New Wave, the Black Panthers in California and even Jim Morrison, who would visit when in Paris
Bande à part Band of outsiders ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in French and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two bumbling burglars plan a robbery with a young woman they just met. Problems begin immediately when they both fall for the girl and the plan goes haywire. The jewel-heist plot is merely a jumping off point for Godard's fast-paced mix of fantasy and spoof of Hollywood crime films

La Pointe-Courte ( Visual )
16 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great Agnes Varda's film career began with this graceful, penetrating study of a marriage on the rocks, set against the backdrop of a small Mediterranean fishing village. Both a stylized depiction of the complicated relationship between a married couple and a documentary-like look at the daily struggles of the locals, Varda's discursive, gorgeously filmed debut was radical enough to later be considered one of the progenitors of the coming French new wave
Jacquot ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in French and German and held by 188 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
Cinevardaphoto ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 169 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 ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in French and English and held by 149 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 )
6 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in French and English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Summary: 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
