The wonderful Agnès Varda has died, aged 90. The French director was the oldest ever Oscar nominee, and was best known as a key figure in the French New Wave and for a string of documentaries that culminated in an Oscar nomination for Faces Places in 2018. We love the story of how Agnès was unable to attend the Oscars nomination lunch, so she sent along several lifesize cardboard replicas of herself!
