Agnès Varda Tribute Screening

Session Times



In tribute to the utterly brilliant Agnès Varda, the late godmother of French New Wave, we've brought back a much-loved former Sydney Exclusive release. Made in collaboration with eccentric conceptual artist JR, Faces, Places is a warm, witty and spectacularly enjoyable odd couple odyssey as the brilliant pair travel across rural France and form an unlikely friendship. Both sharing a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared, this film offers a joyous reflection on filmmaking and life itself.

Critic's Pick — "A powerful, complex and radical work ... unforgettable"
— The New York Times
"The best documentary of the year"
— Vanity Fair, Vogue, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, Indiewire and New York Magazine

Why You Should See This Film

When JR — a long-time fan — first met Varda at her home on Rue Daguerre, they both immediately knew that they wanted to work together. Faces, Places playfully documents their heart-warming geographical journey and the tender friendship they form along the way.
