The indefatigable Agnès Varda, octogenarian and treasure of world cinema, teams up with the mysterious JR, a street artist specialising in large-scale outdoor photographic portraiture, in the delightful Faces Places, a docu-travelogue that sees the irresistibly incongruent duo embark on a quest to honour the faces and places of rural France. Travelling from town to town in JR’s van, fitted out to resemble a gigantic camera, they immortalise the faces of intriguing locals they meet along the way with immense public murals. (Notes by David O’Mahony)

Director’s Note: 30-something artist JR and 80-something Varda travel rural France celebrating the process of creativity.

Screening as part of the IFI French Film Festival 2017 – November 15th to 26th.
