Intro to Agnes Varda

Series: Movie Madness University

Four-week Movie Madness University class held Mondays in June at 7:00pm.

In this course we’ll discuss the legend, the myth, the bowl cut… of the one and only Agnès Varda. A multidisciplinary pioneer of the French New Wave, Documentary Realism, and Experimentalism, and described by Martin Scorsese as "one of the Gods of Cinema," Varda is an icon for a reason.

This class will provide an introduction to Varda’s career through the lens of four representative works. For a list of specific titles that will be featured in the course, please email with “class titles” in the subject line.

Movies will be screened at the Movie Madness Miniplex, followed by an instructor-led discussion. Classes will begin on June 6 and be held Mondays through June at 7:00pm. Proof of vaccination is required for all students and instructors.

Tuition is $75 for the four-week class, $60 for Hollywood Theatre/Movie Madness members. Class size will be limited to 18.

This class will be taught by MMU Lead Instructor Kia Anne Geraths, a filmmaker and educator.  Her previous classes for MMU include Cult Horror of the ‘70s, ‘80s, & ‘90s; Women in Documentary Filmmaking; and more.
