Faces Places

Screening on 15/03/19 as part of the Born a Rebel project

France 2017
Dirs: Agnès Varda, JR
Cert TBC
89 mins

The combination of octogenarian director Agnès Varda, veteran of the French New Wave, and hip, thirty-something street photographer JR, is a joy to behold! They become firm friends and embark on a most unusual road trip in JR’s van (more like a giant Polaroid camera on wheels) across France, talking to ordinary working people they meet in out-of-the-way places and pasting huge photos of them on the walls of houses, factories etc. The directorial duo prove to be great communicators and also good listeners, making for some lively and entertaining episodes. A charming and good-natured celebration of art and life.
