Faces Places

"Sheer perfection. French New Wave veteran Agnes Varda and the young photographer JR leap fearlessly into the art of making art in the year's best and most beguiling doc." - Rolling Stone

“A collaborative project between the legendary director Agnès Varda and the French street artist JR, the documentary, Faces Places, takes the shape of a road trip infused with equal parts whimsy, artistic experimentation and awe-inspiring monumentality. The film opens with Varda, 89, meeting up with JR, an anonymous photographer whose habit of superimposing massive images of faces and eyes on such public surfaces as walls, streets and rooftops has made him a star on a par with Banksy. They discover a mutual fascination with people and their environments and embark on a tour de France in JR’s customized van.

“What Varda and JR discover — and what Faces Places celebrates with such brio and bracing humor — are the farms, factories and shipping docks where everyday people make their living and create their lives. Inviting these citizens into their project, they paste their enormous portraits onto houses, trains, barns, and town squares creating homages to shared history and human connection that are both intimate and epic. While Varda and JR ply their trade as visual troubadours, they contemplate their own ideas of what constitutes artistic vision.” - Washington Post
