Directed by Agnès Varda

France 2008 110 mins. In French with English subtitles

One of Varda’s most beautiful tributes to life as we know it, The Beaches of Agnès is a cine-memoir which she dubbed as her final film, although she’d go on to make several more works of remembrance and joy. Nearing her 80th birthday, Varda reflects on her childhood, life with her beloved husband Jacques Demy, and the various travels and works of art that have graced her life. An ingeniously constructed work of extreme beauty and rumination, this cinematic love-letter reserves its most poignant moments for her friends who have come and gone, forever missed.

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.
