“The Beaches of Agnès” is a documentary film based on Agnès Varda’s memories. She goes back to the places where she had lived, including Belgium, Siete, Paris and Noirmoutier, and reflects on her career in filmmaking. The movie explores the themes of human memory, ageing and losing both memories and close people in your life. It was supposed to be the directress’ last film, however, in 2017 she co-directed another one - “Faces Places.”
The screening of “The Beaches of Agnès” is a part of the series “Interiors”, in which the National Museum in Warsaw presents movies with deep insight into the world around us. Among them are “The Treasures of Crimea” directed by Oeke Hoogendijk, “Odessa... Odessa!” (Michale Boganin), “A Room with a View” (James Ivory) and “Beau Travail” (Claire Denis), the winner of 2022 Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. You can see the full schedule here.
The screenings take place every Sunday, at 9:30 P.M. in July and at 9 P.M. in August. Everyone is welcome to come.
