Cannes Film Festival 2019 - official tribute poster for Agnes Vardy

The Cannes Film Festival 2019 will be held as usual in May, and now we can see the official poster. It is a tribute to the director who recently died, Agnes Vardy.

The photo of Agnes Vardy standing on the shoulders of the technician, according to the organizers of the Cannes Film Festival, shows "all her features: passion, confidence and playfulness". In the press release you can read that "avant-garde, but popular, intimate and at the same time universal, her films have always set new directions. And so, high on this pyramid, looking at the beach in Cannes, young and eternal Agnes Varda will be an inspiring light 72 festival edition.

- However, I'm really interested in other people and I want to film others, because people have always been the most important inspiration for me - said the director in one of the interviews.

Agnes Varda was the first director in history to receive the honorary Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival. It happened in 2015. & # 39; Honorary Golden Palm previously went to the hands of Woody Allen & nbsp; in 2002, Clint Eastwood in 2009 and Bernardo Bertolucci in 2011. The award is presented to recognized directors who have never won the main prize in Cannes before.

Varda's films have participated in the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival 13 times. & Nbsp; In & nbsp; 2005 & nbsp; the director was a member of the jury, and in 2013 she was the chairman of the Golden Camera jury.

Varda was born in 1928 in Brussels. She studied philosophy, fine arts and photography, and began her career as a photojournalist. & Nbsp; Her film debut was & nbsp; "La Pointe Courte" & nbsp; from 1956. Her two more films - the loud "Cléo from 5 to 7" and & nbsp; "Happiness" - are included in the New Wave cinema.

In 1962, Varda married the famous French director Jacques Demy. The couple went together to the USA in 1967. There, the director managed to make two documentaries - "Uncle Yanco" and "Black Panthers" and one experimental film "Lions Love". After returning to France, she made the film Daguerreotypes, portraying the area in which she lives and people from her neighborhood.

In 1977, the director & nbsp; made the film "One is singing, the other is not" with a clearly feminist pronunciation. In 1979 she and her husband left for America again. In 1984, & nbsp; Varda & nbsp; made "Without Roof and Rights", a plot imitating the documentary. & Nbsp; This title & nbsp; in 1985 was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Festival.

The Cannes Film Festival 2019 will take place from May 14 to 25, 2019. This year & nbsp; Mexican director, screenwriter and film producer Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu became the chairman of the Main Competition jury.
