A film for all faces

Contributed The Upcoming

A self-reflective documentary featuring many faces will hit the screen tonight in Kamloops. 

Kamloops Film Society presents Faces Places, directed by an 89-year-old French woman, is meant to speak to universal concerns in an iconoclastic fashion. 

The director, Agnes Varda and the photographer and visual artist, JR, come together for his Inside Out project, in which he takes portraits of regular people and pastes the pictures, in gigantic-poster format, onto walls and buildings.

Varda is known for her trademark two-tone hairstyle and stands a good foot shorter than JR, who often hides behind his sunglasses. 

Nearing 90, Varda shifts through her memories of the towns they visit.

Critical Notes:

  • Agnès Varda’s new documentary film, "Faces Places," is a testament to her curious, generous, democratic spirit. A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
  •  Faces Places is a one in a million crowd-pleaser that deserves to be seen by the widest audience possible. David Sims, The Atlantic.
  •  This film is drunk on the joy of creating things. Tim Brayton, Alternate Ending.

The 90-minute film is in French, with subtitles.
