Agnès Varda brings New York counterculture to Los Angeles! In a rented house in the sun-soaked Hollywood Hills, a woman and two men, Viva, of Warhol Factory fame, and James Rado and Gerome Ragni, who created and starred in the rock musical “Hair,” delight in one another's bodies while musing on love, stardom, and politics. They are soon joined by underground director Shirley Clarke, playing herself as well as functioning as a surrogate for Varda. Lions Love (...and Lies) is a metacinematic inquiry into the alternating currents of whimsy and tragedy that typified late-sixties America.

Part of Agnes & Shirley, a She’s A Rebel mini-season looking at the work of Agnès Varda and her self-described ‘double’ Shirley Clarke.
