Faces Places

Visages Villages

Rating: PG13

Synopsis

Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2018 Academy Awards, the film follows the travels of the late filmmaker Agnès Varda and photographer JR through rural French towns. They meet coal miners, farmers, cheese-makers, truck drivers and factory workers and create epic-size portraits of them. With these two kindred spirits shaping the film from both behind and in front of the camera, this personal/road-trip documentary profoundly captures the power of art to connect communities.

Between stops, Varda and JR share honest musings about their artistic practices and philosophies of image- making. With Varda in her golden years, Faces Places also becomes a poignant conversation on life and the relentless forward march of time.
