Please join us for a screening of "Faces Places / Visages Villages" as part of the Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival: "Film Lives!"

Kindred spirits, 89-year old Agnès Varda, the legendary French New Wave pioneer, teams up with acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer JR to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie, traveling through French villages in JR’s photo truck, meeting locals and producing epic-size portraits displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains. Faces Places documents these encounters and the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way. Winner of the Golden Eye at Cannes and 2018 Oscar nominee for Best Documentary. Agnès Varda was awarded an Honorary Oscar in 2017 for lifetime achievement.
