Belgian-born film director Agnes Varda died at her home in Paris aged 90 on Friday (March 29), her film production company Cine-Tamaris said.

Varda was a towering figure of French New Wave cinema of the 1950s and 1960s and a contemporary of directors such as Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

Varda won an honorary Oscar in 2017 for her career that included the feminist classic "Cleo from 5 to 7" and "The Gleaners and I".

Her latest film, "Varda by Agnès", was presented in February at the Berlin Film Festival and received the honorary Berlinale Camera award.
