Documentary on the shopkeepers of the rue Daguerre in Paris.

Join local filmmaker Terrance Odette and special guest Ryan Ferguson for a post-screening casual chat; we'd love to hear your thoughts about the film!

"Observing traditional crafts and trades with loving fascination, Varda empathetically evokes their paradoxes - the depth of practical knowledge, the lack of variety in experience." - New Yorker

"Like many of Varda's similarily themed explorations, the results are more than they initially seem, casual anthropology with a strongly humanist bent, resulting in a film that's fueled more by compassion than curiosity." - Slant Magazine

"Daguerreotypes has aged splendidly, acquiring flavours that would've been inconceivable at the time it was made" - AV Club

"Varda has shown an extrodinary gift for capturing the theatricality of the mundane, particularly in her documentaries." - Village Voice
