Location: Beacon Hill (click for map)

Travel through rural France with filmmaker Agnes Varda and photographer JR as they photograph ordinary people and post enormous prints of them on town walls and even on trains. 89-year old Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33 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. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains revealing the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. “Faces Places” documents these heart-warming encounters and highlights intergenerational friendships, ways art can overcome socioeconomic divides and can build power for social change.
