They find her frozen body in a ditch. This was Mona (Sandrine Bonnaire), a drifter living on society’s margins, putting down no roots, forming no ties. Part mystery, part character study, part sociological portrait, Varda’s arresting drama reconstructs the last few weeks of Mona’s life through the recollections of those who met and tried to reckon with her.
Vagabond will be preceded by the short “So-Called Caryatids” (12 min).
Shown in conjunction with the film course The Immortal Cinema of Agnès Varda, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Lisa DeNight.
