Event Details

Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: their passion for images in general and more particularly questioning the places where they are showed, how they are shared, exposed.

Faces Places screens on general release from Fri 21 September.

Join Birds’ Eye View for a post-screening discussion following the screening on Wed 26 Sep at 18:10.

Revered for her bold political and autobiographically inspired work, Agnès Varda is a seminal feminist filmmaker and matriarch of the French New Wave. Her influential career began in the 1950s with La Pointe Courte – often considered the unofficial first film of the New Wave – and continues seven decades later, as in 2017 she became the first female director to be awarded an honorary Oscar.

To celebrate the release of Agnès Varda’s new film Faces Places, we will be screening a retrospective of her work this summer.

Gleaning Truths is brought to audiences with the support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
