Synopsis by Matthew Tobey

A year after the untimely death of her husband and fellow filmmaker Jacques Demy, director Agnès Varda produced this film based on Demy's memoirs. Focusing on Demy's childhood, Jacquot de Nantes explores the Les Parapluies de Cherbourg director's burgeoning fascination with film as a boy and introduces viewers to his mother and father, a hairdresser and garage owner, respectively. At different stages of his life, Jacquot is portrayed by young actors Philippe Maron, Edouard Joubeaud, and Laurent Monnier. Jacquot de Nantes was also released as simply Jacquot.
