Returning to the beaches which have been parts of her life, Agnès Varda invents a kind of auto-filmo-documentary. Varda stages herself among excerpts of her films, images and reportages. She shares with humor and emotion her beginnings as stage photographer, innovative early filmmaker of the French Nouvelle Vague, her life with Jacques Demy, her feminism, her trips to Cuba, China and the USA, her life as independent producer and her family life.
«If you opened people up, you would find landscapes, if you opend me up, you would find beaches. Many old people wish to tell their life. As an old filmmaker, with the enthusiasm and energy of my youth, I tried to find a style and a form to tell my memories, my encounters, the ups and downs of my life. I shot my film as a kaleidoscope, a collage, a fantasy.» (Agnès Varda)
