Agnès Godard, AFC gets Angénieux Tribute at Cannes
On Friday, July 16, 2021, Agnès Godard, AFC, was honored with this year’s Pierre Angénieux Tribute for achievement in Cinematography at Cannes. Director Claire Denis gave a beautiful introduction, replete with references to lenses (“they are both companions and safety barriers”) and memories of a viewfinder they both received from Wim Wenders (“le viewfinder”).
Agnes accepted the award (a personalized S35 Optimo Zoom, I think it was a 28-76) with a moving speech and gracious thanks to Angenieux “for being the great spirit of cinema, for providing these precious objects, lenses, mysterious alchemy that transform ideas into images.”
