Agnès Varda, whose unique cinematic vision since the 1950s has earned her a loyal following of enthusiastic cinephiles around the world, and the iconic photographer/muralist JR, boasting over a million followers on Instagram, have more in common than one might imagine.
Both share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared. Agnès chose to explore her passion through cinema and documentary, JR through his emotionally arresting open-air photo installations.
When JR, a long-time fan, went to meet Agnès at her home on Rue Daguerre, they both knew immediately they wanted to work together. VISAGES VILLAGES (FACES PLACES) documents their heart- warming journey through rural France and the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way
★★★★ Two generations of artist collaborate to startling effect in this amusing and heartening documentary.
