Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

They called me 'The Ancestor of the New Wave' when I was only 30. I had seen very few films, which, in a way, gave me both the naivety and the daring to do what I did. See more »

Trivia:

Unlike her friends in the French New Wave associated with Cahiers Du Cinema magazine, and unlike her Left Bank colleague Alain Resnais, Varda had not been a cinephile when she became a filmmaker and had only seen, she said, about ten films by the mid 1950s. See more »

Trademark:

Her bowl-shaped bobbed haircut

Gemini
