Cinévardaphoto

Synopsis

Three short films touching on the art and emotional resonance of photography from director Agnès Varda are collected in this compilation feature. Cinévardaphoto features one new film, Ydessa, the Bears and Etc...( 2004), a profile of Ydessa Hendeles, a Canadian photo collector who has curated exhibitions from her large archive of snapshots of people with their teddy bears, which she believes reveal a great deal about the times and circumstances of their creation. Two earlier Varda shorts also appear: Ulysse (1982) offers a close examination of a photo taken by Varda in Egypt in 1954, while Salut les Cubains (1963) is an animated film created from 1,500 photographs Varda took while visiting Cuba, in which the static images take on joyous life.
