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

". . . 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."

La Pointe-Courte( Visual )

18 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 256 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
Loin du Việt-Nam = Far from Vietnam by Alain Resnais( Visual )

5 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in French and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Initiated and edited by Chris Marker, Far from Vietnam is an epic 1967 collaboration between cinema greats Jean-Luc Godard, Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch and Alain Resnais in protest of American military involvement in Vietnam--made, per Marker's narration, 'to affirm, by the exercise of their craft, their solidarity with the Vietnamese people in struggle against aggression.' A truly collaborative effort, the film brings together an array of stylistically disparate contributions, none individually credited, under a unified editorial vision. The elements span documentary footage shot in North and South Vietnam and at anti-war demonstrations in the United States; a fictional vignette and a monologue that dramatize the self-interrogation of European intellectuals; interviews with Fidel Castro and Anne Morrison, widow of Norman Morrison, the Quaker pacifist who burned himself alive on the steps of the White House in 1965; an historical overview of the conflict; reflections from French journalist Michèle Ray; and a range of repurposed media material."
Cinevardaphoto( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 178 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

10 editions published between 1977 and 1989 in French and English and held by 136 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 Agns Varda( Visual )

10 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 131 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
