In 1975, Agnes Varda explored the daily lives of small business owners and shopkeepers in her neighbourhood, along a short trait of Rue Daguerre. The result is a heartfelt and absolutely charming portrait of a small community in the heart of Paris. 

The screening will be followed by a special discussion with Rebecca DeRoo, Associate Professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology and Agnès Varda connoisseur.

This screening is part of Cinetopia: DOC - Love Your Local, a programme of documentaries and curated online discussion exploring the significance of community.

At a time where social distancing has imposed huge changes to our social habits, this programme intends to explore different aspects of the importance of finding yourself being part of a community. Born at the intersection between someone’s needs and someone else’s willingness to help, the communities depicted in these films are extraordinary examples of people’s desire to support each other and be connected, and show us how in these gatherings one can find friendship, support, and a sense of belonging.

Love Your Local is part of Film Feels Connected, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk
