Merchandise created in conjunction with the museum exhibit DIRECTOR'S INSPIRATION: AGNÈS VARDA. Agnès Varda (1928–2019) was one of global cinema’s most radical and transformative artists. Known for her undeniably personal films, this exhibition explores different influences on the filmmaker’s work. It is organized around three sections—Photography, Real People / Real Life, and Art—which bring forward the diverse sources from which Varda drew inspiration.
In 2017, Varda received an Academy Honorary Award for her contributions to cinema, making her the first female director to receive such an award. The prize was presented at the 9th Annual Governors Awards ceremony. She was nominated two months later for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for her documentary Faces Places, becoming the oldest nominated person at the show (she was eight days older than fellow nominee James Ivory).
