France – Doco – 109 min – G

And now for something completely different.  The legendary French director Agnès Varda, now 89 years old and with vision failing, sets out on a road trip with 33 year-old photographer ‘JR’ in a van which is painted to look like a huge camera and stocked with photographic equipment.  What happens as they wander about the backblocks of France is ‘lovely, surprising and deeply moving’.  They meet ordinary people going about their lives, some of whom they photograph, creating massive portraits pasted onto the walls of local buildings. Meanwhile they discuss art, reflect on the past and even stage a hilarious re-enactment in the Louvre of a scene from Godard movie.  This is ‘a film of sheer joy, its exuberance surpassed only by its tenderness and purity of purpose (Washington Post)’.
