This is a portrait of the painter Jean Varda, my uncle. In the aquatic suburbs of San Francisco, intellectual heart and center of the bohemian, he navigates with a sail and paints celestial and Byzantine cities because he is Greek. Nevertheless, he is involved in young American movements; hippies and drop outs come to see him in his house-boat. How I discovered my American uncle and how marvelous is the man: that’s what I show in this colorful short. —Agnès Varda
