At the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival we discovered a film that we fell in love with and our later engagements of the film went on to become the 3rd and 8th best runs of the film in the country at Rialto Cinemas Elmwood in Berkeley and Rialto Cinemas in Sebastopol. The film is FACES PLACES which chronicles a journey legendary filmmaker Agnes Varda and equally legendary photographer JR take in France.. Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: a passion for and the exploration of images in general, and more precisely, for places and for ways of showing, sharing, and exhibiting them. Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open air photography galleries. When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, to shoot a film in France, far from cities, during a trip in JR's photographic (and magical) truck. Through chance encounters and prepared projects, they reached out to others, listening to them, photographing them, and sometimes putting them on posters. This film also tells the story of Agnès and JR's friendship, which grew stronger throughout the film shoot, between surprises and teasing, and while laughing about their differences. The Detroit News raved ""Faces Places" is a lively, fun, stirring tribute to art and its ability to touch people and bring souls together." While The Washington Post said ""Faces Places" is a film of sheer joy, its exuberance surpassed only by its tenderness and purity of purpose." FACES PLACES is streaming on Kanopy or available to rent for a modest fee from YouTube, GooglePlay, Apple or Microsoft HERE.
