Faces Places

The 89-year-old Agnes Varda, a key member of the French New Wave, is our greatest portraitist of people who live on the fringes of society. JR is a wildly popular 30something French street artist specializing in large-scale photographs. Together, they head into the French heartland, making pictures and asking questions of a goat-herder, a waitress, a postman, workers at a factor, creating a delightfully improvisational and whimsical tale of the working class, the power of art and of a growing friendship between  two artists separated by five decades, one of whom is contemplating the end of her years.  Winner, Best Documentary, Cannes Film Festival. (France, 2017, 89m)
