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.

Faces Places
22 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Two extremely outside the box creative people, Agnes Varda, filmmaker/photographer and JR, photographer and owner of a photo van I want !! As they travel throughout France adding visual impact with the over-sized photos of everyday people, one can't help but be taken in by their enthusiasm for capturing their subjects. I went on their journey with them, and was thrilled when I saw the eyes on the side of the storage tanks. I remember passing them last year, and wondered who had done them.....now I know !! Great film !!
