Faces Places, a New Film by Unlikely Duo Agnès Varda and JR

The legendary filmmaker and street artist travel through rural France and meditate on the value of art and the imagination.

Legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed French photographer and muralist, JR, co-direct this enchanting film.

Together they travel around the villages of France, meeting locals and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on the sides of houses, barns, storefronts, and trains. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely friendship they form along the way.

Faces Places is screening in select theaters beginning October 6.
