Tribute Jane Birkin

JANE B. PAR AGNÈS V.

Agnès Varda
FRA 1987
97min
V'05

In 1987 Varda made her Diptych dedicated to Jane Birkin, which comprised her two films Jane B. par Agnès V. and Kung Fu Master. These two films reflect upon each other and ask questions about representation of women on the screen, fiction and reality: Jane B. par Agnes V. is a cinematic recounting of Birkins career, from her breakthrough appearance as one of the nude models in Antonionis Blow Up to her pinnacle as star of such films as La Femme de ma vie. It is also the story of Birkin and Vardas close relationship, made stronger by their mutual admiration and their lifelong fascination with feminist themes.
