Spotlight on Agnès Varda: Faces Places

Tuesday, June 26th- 7:00 PM-8:30 PM (Run time: 1 hour, 29 minutes)
Faces Places (2017)
Eighty-nine-year-old Agnès Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed thirty-three-year-old French photographer and muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared. Together, they travel around the villages of France in JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing epic-size portraits of them.
About the director: Affectionately known as the “queen of the French New Wave,” Parisian Agnés Varda claims that she had seen virtually no other films before making her directorial debut, La Pointe Courte (1956). Instead, she was inspired by literature, photography, and, most importantly, painting. Inheriting the legacy of the women living and working in Paris during the time period reflected in the special exhibition Women Artists in Paris 1850–1900, Varda’s engagement with art has never wavered throughout her remarkable sixty-year career.
