Every year, there are losses to the film community that affect all who have known and appreciated the work of these iconic actors, visionary directors, and distinguished academics. This fall, we will honor some of those we lost in 2019 with special programs celebrating their lives and achievements.
Agnès Varda was the artist and filmmaker so important to the Nouvelle Vague whose career spanned more than sixty years (November 6); John Singleton was the youngest director ever nominated for the Academy Award (November 13); and Douglas Crimp was an influential art historian, critic, writer, and most recently, professor of art history at the University of Rochester (November 14).
