Abstract
The article analyzes the maturation of cinematic voice and self-styled imperative to speak with images of Agnes Varda's non-fiction travelogues. It looks at the evolution of the literal and figurative voices of Varda's O Saisons o chateaux and Du Cote de la Cote, her transition from being a photographer to film making, and how Varda successfully bridged the gap between voiceover narration and imagery. The author suggests that Varda's travelogues denature preconceived notions of their theme.
