Varda brought an astute, outsider’s perspective to these two companion films made in and about Los Angeles. Though quite different in tone, the pair are complexly interwoven with overlapping images and ideas.
Among her richest nonfiction films, Mur murs looks at LA’s convoluted social, racial, and economic tensions through the lens of the city’s vast array of outdoor murals. Bursting with color and vitality, the film is as much an invigorating study of community and diversity as it is an essential catalogue of public art. (82 mins., DCP)
While in LA during a separation from her husband Jacques Demy, Varda made Documenteur, a small-scale fiction about a divorced mother and her child (played by Varda and Demy’s own son) leading a quiet existence on the city’s margins. (65 mins., DCP)
