Directed by Agnès Varda

France, United States 1968 31 mins. In French, English with English subtitles

Oakland, California, 1968: Varda visits a protest calling for the release of incarcerated Black Panthers leader Huey Newton—and she emerges with a characteristically empathetic and illuminating portrait.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
