81-year-old French Filmmaker Still Working Strong

Filmmaker Agnes Varda's reputation keeps growing with age. :) A new movie called Beaches of Agnes explores Varda's life.

From NPR: "smart, touching, sometimes unabashedly silly, as when Varda dresses up as a potato. She sifts through the diverse elements of her life, from her birth in Brussels in 1928 through the self-inventing moment when she changed her name from Arlette to Agnes to her present day status as an octogenarian grandmother and cinematic icon."
