Storyline

Agnes Varda, one of the leading lights of France's honored French New Wave cinema era, and professional photographer and muralist, J.R., partake on a special art project. Together, they travel around France in a special box truck equipped as a portable photo booth and traveling printing facility as they take photographs of people around the country. With that inspiration, they also create special colossal mural pictures of individuals, communities and places they want to honor and celebrate. Along the way, the old cinematic veteran and the young artistic idealist enjoy an odd friendship as they chat and explore their views on the world as only they can.

SMILES APLENTY...!
30 July 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

A smile of a doc where a filmmaker & a photographer go around rural France taking pics of the inhabitants, printing out the fotos in poster format & placing them in wonderful, unexpected locations. Agnes Varda, the filmmaker, probably one of the last survivors of the French New Wave along w/Godard, her friend, continues in her late 80's to make these delights w/o any guile or pointed agenda to deliver subtle, inspiring works of art.
