Synopsis

The Birds’ Eye View’s new 4 film/5-city Reclaim The Frame film influencer project is a mission to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women to build a more balanced film future. Our collaboration continues with the latest from legendary luminary Agnès Varda FACES, PLACES.


Nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar 2018, making her one of the oldest ever nominees, Agnès Varda also received an Honorary Oscar in 2017 for her incredible fiction and documentary directing which began in 1955. She has been making films for six decades, is a legend, and finally getting the credit she always deserved.


Filmmakers Agnès Varda and JR have things in common: their passion for images in general and more particularly questioning the places where they are showed, how they are shared, exposed. Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create open-air photographic galleries.


When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, shoot a film in France, far from the cities. Random encounters or prepared projects, they will go towards the others and get them to follow them on their trip with JR’s photographic truck.


Faces, Places is also about their friendship that grows during the shooting, between surprises and malice, laughing off their differences.


Reclaim The Frame events feature guest speakers connected to the various themes of the film to open up a conversation with the audience, hosted by Mia Bays and Jo Duncombe from Birds’ Eye View. There will then be a photography workshop after for everyone to mingle and play.


Speakers: Grace Barber Prentie, film writer and critic ; Catherine Loveday Principle Lecturer in Cognitive Neuroscience University Of Westminster ; Eloise King of Women on Docs.
