This cinema-direct documentary from French New Wave pioneer Agnes Varda finds the legendary director touring the neighborhood that surrounds her home of over 50 years: the Rue Daguerre in Paris's 14th arrondissement. As she canvasses the shops and shopkeepers populating the area, an image emerges of a subculture and way of life that have since grown nearly extinct.
