Faces Places (2017)  PG  89 Minutes

89-year old Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33 year-old French photographer and muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed and shared. Together they travel around the villages of France in JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains revealing the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way.

The SJCT Summer Film Series features a variety of independent films and documentaries.

The series is the brainchild of islander Larry Soll, who has always enjoyed independent films and wanted to have the opportunity to see them on the island. “The goal is to offer mind-broadening experiences for islanders," said Larry.
