The film-journey, in which the seminal figure of the French "new wave" Agnes Varda and the modern street artist JR roam through provincial France with a joint art project.
Agnes Varda began her career in documentary films more than sixty years ago. In her new film, Varda teamed up with a young contemporary artist JR, known for her public art projects, based on the possibilities of photography. They go on a trip to the French villages to get to know their inhabitants and leave to their memory their large portraits that they place on the facades of the houses—on busy intersections, quiet streets or remote farms.
As has happened with the documentary films of Agnes Varda, their intentions are revealed in dozens of amazing encounters: with the daughter of a miner, a landowner, the mother of several children, a goat from a dairy factory. The audience will learn the stories of ordinary people, which occur against the backdrop of an unhistorical life, in which there is both leisureliness and its own rhythm, where each case has a place.
