In Motherland or Death you don't add to the uncritical fascination with the Island of Freedom but you don't talk to dissidents either. You avoid siding with any of these typical images of contemporary Cuba. The film is rather a portrait of decay and rupture... An interview with Vitaly Mansky on Russian documentary world by Hana Rezkova (IDF).

Returning to the beaches which have been parts of her life, Agnès Varda invents a kind of self-portrait-documentary. Agnès stages herself among excerpts of her films, images and reportages. She shares with humor and emotion her beginnings as stage photographer, then early filmmaker of the French New Wave, her life with Jacques Demy, her feminism, her trips to Cuba, China and the USA, her life as independent producer and her family. A free and curious woman!
