Jane B. par Agnès V.

Agnès Varda

SaskTel Theatre

In conjunction with her exhibition, Source, artist Sara Cwynar has paired her recent cinematic trilogy with a selection of films. Each of her short works will be followed by a feature-length film that has helped shape her distinctive visual language while shedding light on the filmmaking process.​

The interests, obsessions, and fantasies of two artists converge in this inspired collaboration between Agnès Varda and her longtime friend the actor, Jane Birkin. Made over the course of a year, Jane B. par Agnès V. contrasts the private, reflective Birkin with her public alter ego, as Varda casts her variously as a classical muse, a femme fatale, a Spanish dancer, Joan of Arc, and even a deadpan Laurel opposite a clownish Hardy in a fanciful slapstick spoof. Made in the spirit of pure, uninhibited play, this free-flowing dual portrait unfolds as a shared reverie between two women as they collapse the boundaries between artist and subject. ​

This film will be preceded with a screening of
