MUR MURS
1980, Cine-Tamaris, 81 min, France/USA, Dir: Agnès Varda

Essential viewing for all Angelenos, MUR MURS is Varda’s lively tribute to this city’s outdoor murals, from "Pig Paradise" in Vernon to "The Fall of Icarus" in Venice. Along the way, she captures priceless interviews with the muralists themselves, including 23-year-old Judy Baca, who observes, “I started painting because I realized… that I had never seen a Chicana in a museum.”
