Directed by Agnès Varda

France, Belgium, Spain 1995 90 mins. In French with English subtitles

Not satisfied after making one of cinema’s most lovely tributes to a lover/husband/artist of all time (1991’s Jacquot de Nantes), Varda returns to her late husband’s Jacques Demy’s life with this tender documentary that charts his work from the earliest puppet shows he loved as a youth, to his incredible films, to his impact on collaborators and friends. Playfully interviewing such cinema legends as Catherine Deneuve, Michel Legrand, and Harrison Ford, Varda crafts an impeccable tribute to the immense (and supremely underrated) artistry of the love of her life, one of cinema’s foremost dreamers.

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.
