Faces Places

Dir: JR, Agnès Varda
Cast: JR, Agnès Varda
94mins   2018   France   PG   French    Subtitled    F-Rated

Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: a passion for and the exploration of images in general and, more precisely, for places and for ways of showing, sharing, and exhibiting them. Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open air photography galleries. When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, to shoot a film in France, far from cities, during a trip in JR's photographic (and magical) truck. Through chance encounters and prepared projects, they reached out to others, listening to them, photographing them, and sometimes putting them on posters. This film also tells the story of Agnès and JR's friendship, which grew stronger throughout the film shoot.

'A film of sheer joy, its exuberance surpassed only by its tenderness and purity of purpose' - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Tuesday's screening is introduced by Despoina Mantziari, Teaching Fellow in Film Studies at the University of Sussex
