When director Agnès Varda and photographer JR strike up an unlikely friendship, the duo embark upon a road trip through rural France.
Capturing unique stories and creating stunning, larger-than-life photos along the way. These large-format black and white murals might travel the world or be washed away within hours – but that’s the whole point.
The combination of Agnès’ quirky narration and JR’s emotionally arresting photography creates a deeply charming and unexpected documentary treat.
Faces Places was awarded the Cannes Golden Eye documentary prize (2017) and went on to win awards at the New York Film Critics Circle (2018) and Grolsch People’s Choice Documentary Award at Toronoto International Film Festival (42nd edition).
‘It’s a sketchbook of working-class rural French life, and the images that emerge from it are playful and spooky and beautiful and moving’
