Rated PG , 1 Hour, 29 Mins
Documentary in French with English subtitles

 

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
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 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 in themselves.
Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as
the unlikely, tender friendship they form along the way. At the same
time, the film documents the passage of time and the nature of
memory, and serves as a moving elegy to the fate of the European
working class. Faces Places has already won awards at Cannes and at
the Toronto Film Festival.

Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post writes that “Faces Places is a
film of sheer joy, its exuberance surpassed only by its tenderness and
purity of purpose.” A. O. Scott of the New York Times says that “Faces
Places is unforgettable, not because of dramatic moments or arresting
images, but because once you have seen it you want to keep it with
you, like a talisman or a souvenir. Wherever you’re going, it will surely
come in handy.”
