Faces Places

Faces Places

Directed by JR, Agnès Varda| France | French with English subtitles | 89 mins | 15+


Agnès Varda, whose unique cinematic vision since the 1950s has earned her a loyal following of enthusiastic cinephiles around the world, and the iconic photographer/muralist JR, boasting over a million followers on Instagram, have more in common than one might imagine.

Both share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared. Agnès chose to explore her passion through cinema and documentary, JR through his emotionally arresting open-air photo installations.

When JR, a long-time fan, went to meet Agnès at her home on Rue Daguerre, they both knew immediately they wanted to work together. Visages Villages (Faces Places) documents their heart-warming journey through rural France and the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way.

"Agnès Varda, in the glory of her golden years, has become a humanist magician." – VARIETY

"Visages, Villages is a movie about itself: the subjects are so warm and wonderful, it's a wise move." – THE GUARDIAN
