Reframing Ageing: The Cinema of Older Women

94 mins – France 2017 – Subtitles – Documentary – Dir: Agnès Varda, JR
Featuring: Agnès Varda, JR and Jeannine Carpentier

Agnès Varda’s illustrious career spanned decades, from her pioneering work in French New Wave cinema to the reflective documentaries that defined her late-life work. Released in 2017, Faces Places documents the exploits of the 88-year-old director with 33-year-old street artist J.R., as they take to the French countryside to make large-scale photographic murals with locals they encounter. Playful, entertaining, whimsical and infused with tenderness, the film earned Varda her first and only Academy Award nomination. FACES PLACES is a magnified reflection of the humour, insights and generosity of people from all walks of life, and especially highlights what we may value in getting older.

FACES PLACES is screening as part of the Reframing Ageing: The Cinema of Older Women season. This season is guest-curated by Dr. Neasa Fitzpatrick (Specialist Registrar in Geriatric Medicine at Mercy University Hospital, Cork), who will introduce this screening.

Reframing Ageing: The Cinema of Older Women

“Getting older, colour does me good.” – Agnes Varda to The Gentlewoman, 2018

With a burst of ingénue female filmmakers in recent years, the work of older female filmmakers, who were trailblazers in their day, should not be overlooked. The artistic offerings of older filmmakers are rich and multi-faceted, fortified by the wisdom and insight of a long life, as well as skill and talent refined over years of work. In celebration of Positive Ageing Week 2023, the Triskel cinema is delighted to present a programme of work from three female filmmakers – FACES PLACES (Agnès Varda), BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE (Claire Denis), and THE PARTY (Sally Potter) who were well into their seventh decade or older when they made these films.

This season is guest-curated by Dr. Neasa Fitzpatrick (Specialist Registrar in Geriatric Medicine at Mercy University Hospital, Cork), who will introduce the screening of FACES PLACES.
