Serendipity (2019)

74min Documentary
  • Release Date:10/18/2019
  • Distributor:Cohen Media Group
  • Director:Prune Nourry
  • Cast:Prune Nourry (Self), Agnès Varda (Self)
  • Synopsis:

    Serendipity began as a book, published on the occasion of Prune Nourry's solo show at the Guimet National Asian Art Museum in Paris in 2017. The French-born, New York-based artist has spent the majority of her artistic career creating work that deals with women's bodies and female fertility. A recent breast cancer diagnosis led Nourry to create Serendipity-now in the form of a stunning first-person documentary-which captures the subsequent evolution of her body, her work, her soul, and her mind. This impassioned, beautiful film embodies the artist's belief that everything is connected, coincidence is an illusion, and 'the essentials to life really are health, love, and art.'
