Rajiv Vaidya Memorial Lecture: Agnès Varda and the Art of the Documentary

December 3 at 2:00
East Building Auditorium
Lecture by Kelley Conway

Agnès Varda is often associated with the French New Wave but her importance transcends that historical moment. Her latest work, Visages Villages (2017), codirected by photographer and installation artist JR, exemplifies Varda’s experimentation with documentary form. Film historian Kelley Conway explores Varda’s career and her documentary practice, followed by a screening of Visages Villages. Kelley Conway is professor in the department of communication arts at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and author of Chanteuse in the City (2004) and Agnès Varda (2015). (Approximately 60 minutes)
