Agnès Varda (1928-2019)
Nausicaa (1971)
Agnès Varda wrote the script of this semi-autobiographical love story, a reaction to the military putsch in Greece, in 1967. After receiving approval to shoot the film for French television in 1970, her elements were confiscated, her postproduction lab was broken into, and the entire film was eventually seized and suppressed. Varda never received a formal explanation from the government. The Royal Belgian Cinematheque preserved the sole existing workprint of the film, which is presented here.
