SFMOMA and BAMPFA will be co-hosting a Varda retrospective starting in December as well, though so far they've only mentioned it in a pre-show slide from SFMOMA and soft-confirmed via tweet from BAMPFA.

Interesting that both The Beaches of Agnès and Daguerreotypes are still in print from Cinema Guild.

There's no way Janus has it. It's only been, what, four months?

Janus is just quoting David Lynch at the Governors Awards where he, along with Lina Wertmuller, Wes Studi and Geena Davis, received honorary Oscars. That quote, ("You have a very nice face. Good night.") is how Lynch closed his brief thank you speech.

Janus has a page up for the Kiarostami retrospective and it says
Janus Films is proud to present a touring retrospective spanning Abbas Kiarostami’s nearly five-decade career. This series includes new restorations, undertaken by the Criterion Collection and MK2, of The Koker Trilogy, Taste of Cherry, The Wind Will Carry Us, and rarely screened shorts and documentaries.
While there is no page for The Wind Will Carry US on Janus' site, I can't imagine Criterion footing part of the bill for a restoration of a title they can't release.
There is now a page for The Wind Will Carry Us
