Heralded as one of the best docs ever made, 2017 Oscar nominee Faces Places sees legendary art-house icon Agnès Varda, then 89, team up with 34-year-old superstar artist JR on a travelogue through the picturesque French countryside. Travelling in a van outfitted to produce massive murals which they then put up on buildings, the unlikely duo set out to create monuments to everyday individuals they encounter. Moving from town to town, they come across a marvelous cast of characters, all the while becoming close friends. Faces Places is a touching and generous celebration of art’s connective power, guided by the curiosity and creativity of two visionaries.
