Liverpool Biennial 2018: The Gleaners and I – Agnès Varda: Pioneer
Times: 18:30 - 20:00
Dir. Agnès Varda, 2000, France, 82 min (U)
An 1867 painting by Jean-Francois Millet inspired Varda to cross the French countryside to videotape people who scavenge.
Over six decades, multi-award winning Agnès Varda has established herself at the vanguard of world cinema, directing over 50 films, shorts and documentaries. Alongside presenting a newly commissioned work for the Biennial, FACT and Picturehouse present weekly screenings of the works of Agnès Varda, and a personally curated set of films to accompany her own. The film programme is accompanied by a wide range of talks, live events and Q&As, offering a variety of approaches into the themes and subjects covered by the films.
Agnès Varda: Pioneer is presented in partnership between FACT, Liverpool Biennial, Picturehouse, BFI and University of Liverpool.
