In December 1962, just two months after the missile crisis, Agnès Varda (born 1928) traveled to Cuba. Like many French intellectuals, she was fascinated by this island and its charismatic leader and wanted to make a film to understand this particular mix of pure socialism, sensuality and cha-cha-cha. In order to preserve her freedom of movement, she traded film for still photography, with the idea of subsequently filming and reanimating her photographs with a rostrum camera. Although they had not been devised as art photographs, the shots from Salut les cubains (1964), presented for the first time in this French-language-only book, are of exceptionally high quality, an example of unhindered street photography. We recognize the sharp but always warm-hearted style for which Varda is known, as well as the tension between still and animated images. Agnes Varda: Cuba also compiles Varda’s archives--notebooks, sketches and editing notes--along with four illuminating essays. Please note that this title is in the French language only.

About the Author:

Réalisatrice et photographe, Agnès Varda a grandi à Bruxelles puis à Sète avant de s'installer à Paris pour suivre des études de photographie à l'Ecole des beaux-arts et d'histoire de l'art à l'Ecole du Louvre. Photographe des débuts de Jean Vilar en Avignon, puis de la troupe du TNP et du Théâtre de Chaillot, elle se fait connaître grâce à ses photographies de Gérard Philipe et de Maria Casarès. En 1954, avec des moyens de fortune, elle tourne son premier long métrage de fiction, La Pointe courte, pour lequel elle choisit Alain Resnais comme monteur et deux acteurs du TNP, Silvia Monfort et Philippe Noiret, alors débutants au cinéma. Ce coup d'essai audacieux, mêlant chronique réaliste et étude psychologique, s'inscrit dans la mouvance naissante de la Nouvelle vague. Le succès public suivra en 1961 avec Cléo de 5 à 7 tandis que Le Bonheur décrochera le prix Louis-Delluc en 1965. La réalisatrice s'installe ensuite à Los Angeles où elle fréquente, entre autres, Andy Warhol et Jim Morrison. Elle y tournera notamment Lions love, une fiction hippie. Documentariste, Agnès Varda est aussi le témoin de son époque, évoquant les luttes féministes dans L'une chante, l'autre pas (1977) ou la condition des sans-abris dans Sans toit ni loi (1985, Lion d'Or à Venise), ou Les glaneurs et la glaneuse (2000) qui a pour cadre la société de consommation. Elle reçoit en 2001 un César d'honneur et la Palme d'or d'honneur à Cannes en 2015 pour l'ensemble de son oeuvre.
