    Synopsis

    From Agnès Varda, director of The Beaches of Agnès and The Gleaners and I, comes the wonderful Cinevardaphoto, a triptych of short films exploring the power and vitality of the photograph. In Ydessa, The Bears and Etc., Varda discovers a haunting exhibit of found photos, each showing a teddy bear. With Ulysses, she deconstructs a picture from her early career as a photographer. While the exuberant Salut les Cubains uses still photos to capture the spirit of the Cuban revolution's early days.
