Tea With Chris is a roundup of recommended links, posted every Thursday. Here are a few of our favourite things from the Internet this week:
Margaux: Here is a video of Agnes Varda and Susan Sontag being “interviewed” by Newsweek film critic Jack Kroll.

Sometimes in playing the devil’s advocate, you help to make the devil real. (link thanks to movie maker Elisabeth Subrin)
