‘Faces Places’ is a lively, fun, stirring tribute to art and its ability to touch people and bring souls together. Agnes Varda, one of the leading lights of France's honoured French New Wave cinema era, and professional photographer and muralist, J.R., partake in a unique art project. Together, they travel around France in a special box truck equipped as a portable photo booth and travelling printing facility as they take photographs of people around the country. With that inspiration, they also create special colossal mural pictures of individuals, communities and places they want to honour and celebrate. Along the way, the old cinematic veteran and the young artistic idealist enjoy a growing friendship as they chat and explore their views on the world.
