A GENUINE GRANDE DAME OF EUROPEAN FILMMAKING
Monday, September 25th, 2017

 Agnès Varda received the first of this year’s Donostia awards from Festival director José Luis Rebordinos in an intimate ceremony in the Victoria Eugenia Theatre yesterday afternoon. This meant that the Award was going back to its roots, as it was here that the early winners were honoured back in the 1980s.

Agnès Varda thanked the Festival and said that she was very pleased to be receiving the award. However, as a filmmaker who is often con- sidered to be a central figure in the Nouvelle Vague with a characteristic experimental style, she said she was also very surprised, because, on seeing the list of previous winners, she associated the award with people who had had great commercial success in their film careers, which is not her case. After an emotional embrace between the director and her daughter, the producer, Rosalie Varda, the ceremony was followed by a screening of her latest documentary film Visages, Villages.
