Agnes Varda

With Antonia Quirke. This week The Film Programme recommends not just one lockdown movie, but a whole life-time's. The life and work of Agnes Varda, including masterpieces Cleo From 5 To 7, The Beaches Of Agnes and Faces, Places. We hear one of the last interviews Agnes gave in this country and from JR, her co-director on Faces, Places, who became her best friend, even though there was 50 years between them. Neil Brand continues his series on rejected film scores, with the epic fail of Troy, the blockbuster that sacked its composer at the last minute.

Andrew Kotting

With Antonia Quirke. Before the national lockdown, Antonia went to Hastings to visit film-maker Andrew Kotting just as he discovered that cinemas were shutting down and his latest film The Whalebone Box would not see the light of a projector for the foreseeable future. But, like a number of new releases, it will be available to stream instead Franz Waxman won an Oscar for his score for A Place In The Sun, but he might not have composed all the music on the soundtrack, as Neil Brand reveals.
