Faces Places (Visages Villages)

Dir. Agnès Varda | France 2018 | 94 min | 12A | French Subtitles

Iconic filmmaker Agnès Varda teams up with street artist and photographer JR as they embark on a road trip like no other to examine what it takes to make a meaningful piece of art.

90-year-old Varda and the much younger JR head off to explore the French countryside in JR's camera van (which looks like a giant camera and spits out polaroid-like posters) to explore villages and their humble residents, all the while creating large-scale portraits plastered across unconventional locations. From a solitary farmer to an indispensable postman and a trio of dockworkers, every encounter inspires a giant photo, and our dynamic duo invites conversation on what art can do and the inner workings of the creative process.

Nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar, Faces Places is a deeply charming and life-affirming look at not only the subtle power of community but the inspiration that comes from the most cross-generational of friendships. A real joy.

Tickets: £7.75 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
