'Faces Places', made in Agnès Varda's 90th year, sees the auteur forging an unlikely partnership with enigmatic photographer JR as they embark on a road trip unlike any other. When the pair first met they instantly recognised the opportunity for a unique collaboration and set about exploring the villages and small towns of rural France. Meeting different groups of people, they were inspired to create large-scale portraits plastered across unconventional locations. What followed was a heartwarming insight into hitherto unnamed communities, documented here in Varda’s typically tender, playful and humanist manner. Winner of the Golden Eye Award at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for the Best Documentary Feature award at this year’s Academy Awards, 'Faces Places' is a deeply charming and life-affirming look at not only the subtle power of community but the inspiration that can emerge from the most unexpected of friendships. ★★★★ "As provocative as it is poetic and poignant" - David Parkinson, Empire ★★★★ "A typical, even archetypal, Varda mixture of the combative and the contemplative" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★★ "The subjects are so warm and wonderful... A self-referential marvel" - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
