Part documentary and part road movie, the enchanting and moving Faces Places teams 89-year old Agnès Varda (Cleo from 5 to 7, Vagabond), one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR. 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 truck 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 they formed along the way. Winner of the Golden Eye Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and the People’s Choice Award for Documentary at the Toronto Film Festival. (Fully subtitled)
