Agnès Varda created a stir by participating in the creation of the script for the erotic film "Last Tango in Paris". Her creative film "Cléo from 5 to 7" is considered one of the gems of the French New Wave. Documentaries play an important role in her work, although they are rather unknown by a broader audience. Varda has not joined any group or movement. The authors of the French New Wave viewed Varda primarily as a friend and collaborator of Jean-Luc Godard, Alain Resnais, Chris Marker, Jacque Demy and many others. Her approach to film production was an inspiration to a number of these artists.
