FACES PLACES  - Monday 28th May 2018
Directed by JR, Agnes Varda
France/Documentary
89 mins Subtitled PG

Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: a passion for and the exploration of images in general, and more precisely, for places and for ways of showing, sharing, and exhibiting them. Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open air photography galleries. When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, to shoot a film in France, far from cities, during a trip in JR's photographic (and magical) truck.

Through chance encounters and prepared projects, they reached out to others, listening to them, photographing them, and sometimes putting them on posters. This film also tells the story of Agnès and JR's friendship, which grew stronger throughout the film shoot, between surprises and teasing, and while laughing about their differences.

Reviews:

“The most genuinely uplifting film of 2017...Despite their 55 year age difference, Varda and JR are 2017's best cinema couple, their shared humanity and offbeat senses of humour making every moment spent with them a delight..”. –Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews.

“Faces Places" is a film of sheer joy, its exuberance surpassed only by its tenderness and purity of purpose..” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Agnès Varda, in the glory of her golden years, has become a humanist magician.”..- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
