- Director:J.R. i Agnès Varda
Agnes Varda, one of the leading lights of France's honored French New Wave cinema era, and professional photographer and muralist, J.R., partake on a special art project. Together, they travel around France in a special box truck equipped as a portable photo booth and traveling printing facility as they take photographs of people around the country. With that inspiration, they also create special colossal mural pictures of individuals, communities and places they want to honor and celebrate. Along the way, the old cinematic veteran and the young artistic idealist enjoy an odd friendship as they chat and explore their views on the world as only they can.
About the director
Agnès Varda was born on May 30 1928 in Brussels. Her films, photographs, and art installations focus on documentary realism, feminist issues, and social commentary with a distinctive experimental style. She is considered central to the development of the French New Wave. Her employment of location shooting and non-professional actors were unconventional in the context of 1950s French cinema.
JR is the pseudonym of a French photographer and artist who was born 22 February 1983 and whose identity is unconfirmed. He states that the street is „the largest art gallery in the world“. He flyposts large black-and-white photographic images in public locations, in a manner similar to the appropriation of the built environment by the graffiti artist. He started out on the streets of Paris and his work deals with commitment, freedom, identity and limits.
