88 year-old filmmaker Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave and acclaimed 33 year-old French muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, together they travel around the villages of France in JR's photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories and producing epic-size portraits and affixing them onto buildings, barns and railcars, making ordinary people extraordinary. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way. "...anyone who can't enjoy this wise and soulful film has to consider whether they've given up on the movies, and on life." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
