Cancelled: Vagabond

(Agnès Varda, 1985, France, 105 minutes)

35mm print!

With this screening of Vagabond, one of her essential films, the Classic French Film Festival pays homage to the late Agnès Varda — director of such masterpieces as Cléo from 5 to 7, One Sings, the Other Doesn’t, The Gleaners and I, and Faces Places — who died last year after a hugely diverse and influential career. Sandrine Bonnaire won the Best Actress César for her portrayal of the defiant young drifter Mona, found frozen to death in a ditch at the beginning of Vagabond. The film pieces together Mona’s story through flashbacks told by the people — played by a largely nonprofessional cast — she encountered on her travels, producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. With its sparse, poetic imagery, Vagabond is a stunner and won Varda the top prize at the Venice Film Festival.

With an introduction and post-film discussion by Kathy Corley, documentary filmmaker and professor emerita of film at Webster University.
