Agnès Varda Forever Festival
Founded by Portland artists Laura Glazer and Jennifer "JJ" Jones, the grassroots project Agnès Varda Forever has blossomed from a pandemic-era street art endeavor to a month-long film festival celebrating Agnès Varda's trailblazing oeuvre. The late director's style was summarized by Martin Scorsese as "big and small, playful and tough, generous and solitary, lyrical and unflinching." If you haven't yet marinated in Varda's brilliant French New Wave films, now's the time. The festival concludes this week with a screening of The Beaches of Agnès.
