An open air screening homage to the grand old lady of French cinema.

Prolific director and pioneer filmmaker of the French New Wave, Agnès Varda, teams up with a renegade travelling companion, the imaginative and rather cryptic street photographer, muralist and installation artist, J.R., on a whimsical tour across the French countryside. The idea behind this artistic road trip of discovery is quite simple. The duo visits isolated villages, vast farms and small communities with an unquenched thirst to meet people and their amazing stories, which become part of an ever-growing mosaic of memories through massive, black-and-white posters plastered to walls. The result of this unexpected collaboration is surprising. But isn’t that the whole point of art?
