Teaming up with photographer/muralist, JR, Agnès Varda journeys through rural France, meeting locals and developing a sense of humanity and character through art by virtue of their own sensibilities and the perspectives of those they meet along the way.

Primary female director of the French New Wave, Agnès Varda has been revered as the mother and grandmother of the movement. From drama film, Cléo from 5 to 7 to revered documentaries, The Beaches of Agnès and The Gleaners & I, Varda has regarded political and feminist ideologies in the most revealing proximity. 

“Magnificently moving, funny, life-affirming, and altogether wonderful...a screen duo for the ages.” - David Ehrlich, Indiewire
