The brief years that French New Wave force Agnès Varda spent in California during the 1960s, 70s, and 80s yielded a body of films that reflect life in America as only an outsider could see it. Chronicling the people, politics, and landscapes of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and beyond, Varda’s California works reveal an artist alternately playful, reflective, and endlessly curious about her surroundings.

Varda captures the yin and yang of California life: Uncle Yanco grooves on the vibes of sun-kissed 60s bohemia, while Documenteur, about a woman and son searching LA for a home, reveals the melancholic flipside.

In 1969, Varda’s husband Jacques Demy made this tender, pastel love letter to the “real” LA—its sprawling freeways, parking lots, and seedy margins—far removed from the Dream Factory fantasy.
