Directed by Agnès Varda and JR
“Magnificently moving, funny and altogether wonderful!” —IndieWire
89-year old Agnès Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33 year-old French photographer and muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie.
Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed and shared. Together they travel around the villages of France in JR’s photo lab rig meeting locals, learning their stories and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains revealing the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship formed along the way.
Winner of the Golden Eye Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and Varda recently was bestowed a special honorary Oscar in November. 2017, France, DCP, in French with English subtitles, 90 minutes. Rated PG.
