(France/2017—directed by Agnès Varda and JR)
Recipient of an honorary Oscar® this year for her lifetime of cinematic achievement, 89-year old Agnès Varda remains at the top of her game with this enchanting new documentary, in which she and 33-year old photographer and muralist JR travel through the French countryside, learning the stories of the locals they encounter and producing epic-sized photographic portraits of them, which are then displayed in the most startling and unexpected of places. Passionate, heart-warming and insightful, Faces Places (Visages, villages) has already won prizes at festivals in Cannes, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and Haifa. In French with English subtitles. (89 min.)
