LACMA’s 2013 Art and Film Gala sees a showing of four restored films by Agnès Varda, once called ‘the godmother of the French New Wave’, along with a new sculptural installation inspired by her time in Los Angeles in the late 1960s and a selection of her excellent photographs.

Born in 1928, the Belgian filmmaker has been making beautiful, challenging feature films and documentaries for six decades. The restored films are Uncle Yanco (1967), Black Panthers (1968), LIONS LOVE (...AND LIES) (1969) and Mur Murs (1981). The show is part of LACMA’s large-scale initiative to explore the place of film in a museum context.
