Film Night - Faces Places

Faces Places.jpg

Veteran director Agnès Varda joins forces with street artist and self-styled photograffeur, JR, to create Faces Places, a funny, moving and multi-layered film. Two kindred spirits from different generations explore the French countryside in JR’s camera van, taking photos of the people they meet and pasting their huge images to village walls. The directorial duo challenge passers-by to look again at familiar surroundings and invite conversations about life and what art can do.

The buddies in Faces Places are perfectly matched, notwithstanding an age difference of 55 years, so the things that happen during their wanderings around rural France aren’t funny in a conventional sense. They are lovely, surprising and deeply moving
