Visages Villages (Faces Places)

December 3 at 4:00
East Building Auditorium

Agnès Varda’s most recent feature, Visages Villages is a witty portrait of France and a friendship and, in Varda fashion, a madcap mission. Varda teams up with installation-and-graffiti artist JR, forming an unlikely duo that travels to pastoral hamlets and secluded spots, meeting local workers, shooting outsized portraits, and plastering these images on the sides of buildings (even, in one case, on a freight train). “In the glory of her golden years, Varda has become a humanist magician” — Owen Gleiberman. (2017, subtitles, 90 minutes)
