Réponse de Femmes: Notre Corps, Notre Sexe, Agnes Varda
The most innovative and original visual artist + filmmaker I know, Agnes Varda, never disappoints. Many original techniques used in this short film: the glass she holds herself at the beginning of the film, on which she writes questions as topics directing the movie. Shooting images of women instead of a women that would make the whole idea look like a banal interview. Inserting images from magazines. Half of the people on shots naked. Voice of “men” as replying to women. Also interesting how smoothly she moves in between questions to create a whole portrait.
I could do a similar one where I ask people what they wanted to become when they were younger and what they are doing now. Why? (The backgrounds should somehow match and not distract the audience – could be a funfair).
