89-year-old Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed and shared. Together they travel around the villages of France in JRs photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories and producing epic-sized portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts & trains, revealing the humanity in their subjects and themselves. FACES/PLACES documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they form along the way.
"This documentary is an absolute delight, but it has a faith in everyday folks that feels both stalwart and melancholy, aware that these are exactly the people being swept away by the tides of modernity. Its a sociopolitical protest disguised as a vacation." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
