FACES PLACES – Review by MaryAnn Johanson
Agnes Varda and photomuralist JR codirected this crowdfunded documentary — more community involvement! — and it is an absolutely wonderful ode to seeing the world with truly open eyes. Even if Varda is losing her eyesight and JR refuses to ever take his sunglasses off. At almost 90, Varda remains an artistic inspiration, nay, a force of nature, whose generosity and creative spirit seems to get enlarged just as JR’s giant photos do by their adventure. May we all be so happily engaged by life and art! Read full review.
