Documenteur is featured in the American Cinematheque’s Directors Abroad, an ongoing series spotlighting films from auteurs working outside of their home film industry.

This small-scale fiction about a divorced mother and her child (played by Agnès Varda’s own son) leading a quiet existence on L.A.’s margins was made directly after MUR MURS, and though DOCUMENTEUR is different in form and tone from that film, the two are complexly interwoven, with overlapping images and ideas. This meditative portrait of urban isolation overflows with subtle visual poetry. 65 min, 1981, France/USA, In French with English subtitles.
