Faces Places (Visages Villages) (12)

Showing on Wed 13 May

Showing times: 20:00 - 21:29

Cinema Duration: 1 hours 29 minutes
In this simple but life-affirming documentary, legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda embarks on an unusual road-trip around small French towns and villages, alongside street artist JR. Their mode of transport is a van made up to look like a camera, which also doubles up as a giant photo booth, complete with an enormous printer from which glorious portraits of local residents emerge that are then pasted onto the walls of significant village buildings. This film celebrates quiet, everyday heroes, but also the joys and possibilities of creativity itself, demonstrating the opportunity of finding inspiration anywhere, if you know how to look for it. The documentary also movingly explores friendship and community across generations, being full of fun, playfulness, and the encouragement to look at the world around us in slightly different ways. Original title Visages Villages.
Showing as part of the Chiltern Film Society season.
In French with English subtitles.
