Agnès Varda is one of my favorite directors of all time. I found out about her when I was researching Godard for my photography projects. I love Godard just as much as the next person, but Varda really has a knack for unveiling the beautiful reality of our mundane lives. That sounds like an academic response, but once you watch her films you’ll understand what I mean.
I also discovered today that we share the same day of birth, May 30th. I find that amusing because when I was watching Les glaneurs et la glaneuse recently I saw myself in her. Have you ever had those moments? I honestly believe that people born on the same day have similar personalities and life experiences. Maybe I just have too much free time.
