Agnès Varda Presents Three Short Films

In L'opéra-Mouffe, Varda evokes the “imaginative world of pregnancy” in a dreamlike montage that combines poetic imagery with documentary portraits shot in the then-gritty Paris neighborhood around rue Mouffetard. A snapshot of Bay Area hippiedom in full flower, Uncle Yanco is a portrait of Varda's uncle, Sausalito artist Jean Varda. The film's images are as vibrant as Yanco's paintings and the man himself. An important document of a different facet of Bay Area culture, Black Panthers documents rallies in Oakland demanding Huey Newton's release from prison, and features activists such as Stokely Carmichael, Kathleen Cleaver, and Newton.
