An unlikely pair team up for a film that demonstrates the transformative power of art that can move us into greater connectivity with our individually and communally.
100% of Rotten Tomatoes critics give ‘Faces,Places’ a thumbs up.
88-year old Agnès 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 JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains revealing a new perspective, the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way.
Wonderful that it is rated PG-13 this is a great film for families.
