Agnes Varda has produced films since 1954 that show prodigious inventiveness in their uses of images, sounds, and music. A "melomane", Varda has experimented with music ranging from classical to high modernism to pop and hip-hop in her films. The relationship between diegetic and nondiegetic plays a determining role in the elaboration of subjectivity in Cleo from 5 to 7 (1961) and what we might call the objectivity of Vagabond (1985).
