Join us at LATITUDE for a screening of VAGABOND, directed by Agnes Varda, and hosted by our current Artist-in-Residence, B. Ingrid Olson!
ABOUT THE FILM:
Agnès Varda pieces together Mona’s story (played by Sandrine Bonnaire who won the Best Actress César) through flashbacks told by those who encountered her (played by a largely nonprofessional cast), producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. With its sparse, poetic imagery, Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi) is a stunner, and won Varda the top prize at the Venice Film Festival.
Stick around for a group discussion afterwards with B. Ingrid Olson on the themes and subject matter of this film.
Cast: Sandrine Bonnaire Macha Meril Stephane Freiss
