FACES PLACES

(Documentary · 2017 · 90 min. · Language: French)

Friday, April 6 · 6 PM · $10

Presented with Hamptons International Film Festival, from the Now Showing: First Run Screening Series.

“Dine & Discuss – Continue the Conversation” will take place after the film at Le Charlot, 36 Main Street. 

89-year old Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33 year-old French photographer and muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed and shared. Together they travel around the villages of France in JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains revealing the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way.

About “Dine & Discuss”:

After each Friday night film, a local restaurant hosts a communal table to allow attendees to discuss the film over dinner. Special discounts and/or a pre-fixe menu may be available. Reservations have already been taken care of – just show up and say “table for Southampton Arts Center”!
