“I feel that between weight and lightness, I choose lightness. And I feel I'm dancing, the dance of cinema.”— The Academy (@TheAcademy) March 29, 2019
Accepting an honorary Oscar in 2017, Agnès Varda brought warmth to the room & proceeded to dance onstage.
Thank you for your vision, Agnès. We know you’re still dancing. pic.twitter.com/ge43gXkXGN
Immense sadness. For almost 65 years, Agnès Varda’s eyes and voice embodied cinema with endless inventiveness. The place she occupied is irreplaceable. Agnès loved images, words and people. She’s one of those whose youth will never fade. pic.twitter.com/cpquJXJtwK— Festival de Cannes (@Festival_Cannes) March 29, 2019
RIP Agnès Varda, a icon of independent cinema before it even had that name. 'Faces Places' was an inventive, funny capper on an extraordinary career. Was funny to see her, smiling with bemusement, on the 2017 Oscar circuit. She knew she didn't need one. She was already a legend. pic.twitter.com/RDYP0Zi12O— edgarwright (@edgarwright) March 29, 2019
Last year at Cannes, Agnès Varda invited me to breakfast. She spoke of how she was in the last year of her life. About choices. And change. I told her what she meant to me. She held my hand as I did. Merci, Agnes. For your films. For your passion. For your light. It shines on. pic.twitter.com/NP2FSJACY9— Ava DuVernay (@ava) March 29, 2019
