Speisekino /// Food and Footage

Faces Places

89-year-old director Agnès Varda and 33-year-old street artist JR set out on their unique photo mobile to discover and perpetuate France's people and their stories in larger-than-life portraits of facades, trains and shipping containers. From Provence to Normandy, they devote their art to people - be it the postman, the factory worker or the last inhabitant of a road train in the former mining area. Landscapes are transformed into stages, faces tell of forgotten stories, and looks become encounters of warmth and humor.

Nouvelle vague legend Agnès Varda and photographer JR not only share their passion for images, but also a keen sense for people and the poetry of the moment. FACES PLACES is a cinematic stroke of luck that captures the touching encounters of a journey with a special lightness - just like the unlikely and tender friendship that emerges between the two artists. The film received an Oscar® nomination in the Best Documentary category in 2018.
