Faces Places Overview

French film director Agnès Varda, 89, and acclaimed French photographer JR, 33, have many things in common, especially their passion for images and how they are created, displayed and shared.

Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open-air photographic galleries. When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, shoot a film in France, far away from cities. As they travel through villages and small towns in JR's photo truck, they meet communities of people and create large portraits of them to plaster on houses, barns, storefronts and trains.
