Cinécriture
Eer fil’s priar futio is to oe, to take place in time. To clarify
relationships. Cinema is an object of thought.
o Use camera as a way of composing through shots a narrative that is
dense, has depths
Aleader Astru, La aera-stlo
All is writing : editig, sui, olor…
o Agnès Varda
o Vertov, everything is montage
o Not montage for her,, but writings
o Using visuals is another way of writing, compose, make stories
Her films hover b/w fiction and documentary, they explore the boundaries b/w
what is fictional (Constructed, a cliché: seen and accepted as what it is) and the
reality of living in space and under the impact of time
o Interest to see how two actors live within a space and how the space acts
upon them, their feelings and change it, the weight that passing of time
and space on fictional characters

the shots
o Nothing left to chance
Focuses on the details that complicates and enlarges the narrative
o Found object, stands for, resonates symbolic to what happens in the

Film is about mov and the mystery of time: the change that invest perceptions,
heats and appearances
o Cléo from 5 to 7 (follow her in real time) (camera exploring the impact of
time on the character, the story)
Cinema is the mov of sensations… i a fil olor circulates like blooD (varda)
o Technique about materiality of life, emotions
o Materiality of the body as represented in cinema
Developing image
Varda shows how images change over time, throughout the film or a shot
The moment, each moments, is important, and it is important that it will pass
o Tie happe to us, do’t reall ko hat it is
Varda represents how every moment is changed by following moments,
redeemed by following moments
o Staying within a story, events, and following their unfolding
Image not just image, keeps developing according to the encounter, the intensity
of the gaze upon the image
o Time, memory and image
New wave movement (by itself, 1959 to only a couple of years)
