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
