Agnès Varda teams with young street artist JR to make a film as wide-ranging as it is personal. Setting off on French country roads to find subjects for JR’s trademark mural-size portrait photographs, they focus on people generally outside of the spotlight: retired miners, factory workers, wives of dockers, farmers. Each encounter adds to an idiosyncratic portrait of modern-day France, as well as the evolving relationship between Varda and JR. The film will be introduced by Erica Stein (Film) and Laura Hughes (French, New York University) will lead a post-screening discussion. Location: Taylor Hall 203
Price: Free and open to the public.
