“I’m always game to go towards villages, toward simple landscapes, toward faces”


When conceptual artist JR first met iconic French filmmaker Agnès Varda at her home on Rue Daguerre, they both immediately knew that they wanted to work together. Faces, Places playfully documents their heart-warming geographical journey and the tender friendship they form along the way. Faces, Places is a warm, witty and spectacularly enjoyable odd couple odyssey as the brilliant pair travel across rural France and form an unlikely friendship. Both sharing a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared, this film offers a joyous reflection on filmmaking and life itself.
