France, 1983
Short, Documentary


At the sea shore, a goat, a child, and a naked man. This is a photograph taken in 1954 by Agnès Varda. The goat was dead, the child was named Ulysses, and the man was naked. Starting from this frozen image, the film explores the real and the imaginary.

Our take

Considered one of the most beautiful shorts from Agnès Varda, Ulysse takes as its starting point a photograph that she took in 1954. Returning to the image years later, Varda unravels a thread of ideas regarding the authenticity of photography, the passage of time, and the mercuriality of memory.
