OPENS FRIDAY, OCT. 27
A lively road movie centering on a couple of unlikely buddies, this stunning documentary pairs 89-year-old Agnes Varda, leading figure of the French New Wave, with JR, the acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist. They drive around the French countryside in JR’s photo truck, producing epic-size portraits of locals and applying them to the walls of the villages where they live and work. Houses, barns, storefronts and factories are emblazoned with the oversized portraits, creating a visual spectacle in itself and reflecting Varda and JR’s friendly interaction with the people they encounter. It’s a meeting of mind and spirit between two artists who share a lifelong passion for images and the means to share them with the world. In French with English subtitles. Directors: Agnes Varda, JR. (France 2017) 89 min.
