Mur Murs
Not rated | 1980 | 2K DCP | 1 hr 22 min
Directed by Agnès Varda

After returning to Los Angeles from France in 1979, Agnès Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city. Bursting with color and vitality, Mur Murs is as much an invigorating study of community and diversity as it is an essential catalog of unusual public art. In English, French, Italian, and Spanish with English subtitles.

Not rated | 1981 | 2K DCP | 1 hr 5 min
Directed by Agnès Varda

The film is followed by Documenteur, a small-scale fiction about a divorced mother and her child (played by Agnès Varda’s own son) leading a quiet existence on L.A.’s margins. The film was made directly after Mur Murs, and though Documenteur is different in form and tone from that film, the two are complexly interwoven, with overlapping images and ideas. This meditative portrait of urban isolation overflows with subtle visual poetry. In English and French with English subtitles.
