Equal parts breezily charming and poignantly powerful, Faces Places is a unique cross-generational portrait of life in rural France from the great Agnès Varda.
89 year-old Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR team up to co- direct this enchanting documentary/road movie.
Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: their passion for images in general and, more particularly, questioning the places where they are showed, how they are shared, exposed. Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open-air photographic galleries.
When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, shoot a film in France, far from the cities. Faces Places is also about their friendship that grows during the shooting of the film.
