October 10 – Film Screening: “Daguerreotypes”

Screening of Agnes Varda’s documentary filmĀ Daguerreotypes (1975) (the subject of Rebecca DeRoo’s lecture on October 24).

“Beautiful… full of splendid mysteries.” –The New York Times

Daguerreotypes is a wonderfully intimate portrait of the small shops and shopkeepers on a short stretch of the rue Daguerre, a picturesque street that has been the filmmaker’s home for more than 50 years. Varda opens up a fantastic world in microcosm, a picture of a city and a way of life that no longer exists.
