After returning to Los Angeles from France in 1979, Agnès Varda created this kaleidoscopic documentary about the striking murals that decorate the city. Traversing the City of Angels, Varda looks at the murals of Los Angeles – as much monumental as they are ephemeral – as a backdrop to and mirror of the city’s many cultures. She casts a curious eye on graffiti and experiments in photorealism, roller disco and gang violence, evangelical Christians, Hare Krishnas, artists, angels, and ordinary Angelenos... Bursting with color and vitality, "Mural Murals" is an invigorating study of community and cultural diversity, as well as an essential catalog of unusual public art that would have never been preserved if it wasn’t for Varda’s precious testimony on film.

Agnès Varda

Director, photographer, artist, writer and producer, Agnès Varda (1928-2019) left an indelible mark on the French New Wave with her film debut "La Pointe Courte" and "Cleo from 5 to 7", which won her the nickname "mother of the Nouvelle Vague". From then on, she applied her multi-faceted talent and playful approach to both fiction and documentary film, which monopolized the last stretch of her 60-year career.
