“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

After doing a fiction film about Jacques’ childhood (Jacquot de Nantes), my idea was to make a documentary—a relatively objective one—about Jacques Demy, as an adult and a filmmaker. I recorded reminiscences and asked for reactions. I provided some of my personal memories and documents about him, but I often was relayed by his friends, his entourage, the actors and actresses who had worked with him, as well as “fans” and three demoiselles who never met him but who move naturally through his world. —Agnès Varda
