Director Agnès Varda forges an unexpected collaboration with photographer JR as they embark on a road trip like no other. They set out in JR’s photo booth truck, exploring the villages of rural France to take portraits of their residents, enlarged into gigantic murals.
Our hearts melt once again before the legendary Agnès Varda, whose humanism and wit are here paired with the optimistic vitality of acclaimed photographer JR. Celebrating remote lives—as well as their own—with heartwarming playfulness, this irresistible duo enchanted the Croisette and Oscars® alike!
