Main Floor - 100 Arthur Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 1H3
2017, France, 89 min
Directed by Agnès Varda & JR
French with English subtitles

“Winner of Best Documentary at the 2017 Cannes Festival, Faces Places finds Varda (Cleo from 5 to 7, Vagabond, The Gleaners and I) teaming up with a semi anonymous street photographer named JR who serves as the film’s co-director, for a whimsical tour of the French countryside. The plan is to drive from one bucolic village to another, invite the locals to pose in the van that JR has transformed into a mobile photo booth, and paste massive print outs of the resulting portraits onto the environments their subjects call home. But while all of the people they meet are delightful characters…Varda and JR emerge as the real stars here. She is nearly 90; he is 34. She worked with Jean Luc Godard; he looks like Jean-Luc Godard. And yet the movie is barely five minutes old before its clear these two are a screen duo for the ages.” – David Erlich, IndieWIRE
