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. 

Whether you’re aware of Varda’s prolific body of work before watching the film or you’ve simply stumbled here out of luck, it’s impossible not to be charmed by this incredibly soulful film. With all the darkness in the world, we could all do with a little spark once in a while. Faces Places is a lively, wise, purely delightful moving picture that manages to be joyous and profound all at once. It feels like a privilege to witness this revelatory road trip at all.

Important note:  We have become aware that some of our attendees have serious reactions to perfumes and popcorn, yes, popcorn. We ask all attendees to respect these issues and leave perfumes and popcorn at home. Also let us know if you have allergic reactions to something so we can notify others.     
If you are interested in bringing a snack to share with others, feel free to do so. Thank you.
