The Beaches of Agnes Overview

To mark her 80th birthday, filmmaker Agnés Varda reminisces about her life and her films. Her path leads us down the sandy banks of the North Sea in Belgium, where she spent her childhood, then to the beaches of Pointe Courte, near Sète where her family stayed during the war, and finally to the beaches of California, where she lived with her husband, the late director Jacques Demy. She identifies the moments, the meetings and the events that forged her existence. "If you could open people up," she says, "You would find landscapes. Me, if someone opened me up, you would find beaches."
