Faces Places

A playful, creative road trip through the France you don’t see in a travel brochure.


'Faces Places is unforgettable ... once you have seen it you want to keep it with you.'

- New York Times

Join Agnès Varda, a sprightly 89-year-old hero of cinema, and her young pal, star photographer JR as they take their mobile photography lab around rural and working-class France. Get to know the locals, hear their stories and see the incredible giant portrait posters that pop up in unexpected places. This uplifting travelogue celebrates ordinary people, France, art and an unlikely friendship.
