Faces Places

(Visages, villages)

In this remarkable documentary, the forever young-at-heart Agnès Varda teams up with hipster artist JR on a road trip to rural France and its working-class communities, where they meet with the locals and create installations of large-scale photographic portraits. At once about art, society, life, and death, the film is a first-rate achievement in Varda’s brilliant career. We take this occasion to present Varda’s landmark debut feature La Pointe Courte and the beloved Cléo from 5 to 7 in BAMPFA’s Art of Cinematography series. The sixty-three years that separate her first and most recent films span Varda’s life as a filmmaker, one who always looks anew at the world and offers a personal perspective filled with wisdom.
