Agnès Varda, JR
Part of the Nuart Aberdeen 2019 Season
Much as she did with her much-loved classic The Gleaners and I, this whimsical yet profound road trip through the French countryside offers a beautiful meditation on the journey through life and the kindred spirits you meet along the way. 88-year-old Agnès Varda, with her companion, acclaimed 33-year-old visual artist JR, travel through rural France, meeting different groups of people and creating large-scale portraits plastered across unconventional locations, giving a heartwarming insight into hitherto unnamed communities.
Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Golden Eye Award for documentary and the Toronto International Film Festival Documentary People’s Choice Award, Faces Places offers a joyous, inspiring ode to humanity and the power of art to capture its essence.
