If it seems I've taken a bit of a blog-holiday, well, that's because I'm on a bit of a working vacation. (I was in England last week; Switzerland this week and next.) But I have to post a happy birthday announcement to Agnes Varda, one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. David Hudson is gathering well-wishes at Greencine. What a great way to make the announcement that one of my favorite films of Varda's, Jacquot, is now available on (Region 2) DVD from her web store.
Ashley, who is in France (on her way to meet me here in Switzerland), stopped by Varda's office just two days ago, where she briefly met Agnes herself and purchased "the second copy in the world" of the Jacquot DVD. As they say in France, super cool!
