Viva Varda: Faces Places

France/2017/89mins/12A. Dir: Agnès Varda, JR

Taking photos of the people they meet and pasting their huge images to village walls, the directorial odd couple of legendary documentary realist Agnès Varda and photographer JR take a trip around the French countryside. Challenging passers-by to look again at their familiar surroundings while inviting a conversation on the inner workings of the creative process. A funny, moving and multi-layered documentary, that mixes the memories of Varda as she is approaching her tenth decade and the fresh approaches by street artist JR results in visual surprises and moments of sheer joy. 

"a film of sheer joy, its exuberance surpassed only by its tenderness and purity of purpose"
