About:
The odd couple director duo travel around French villages and photograph the people they meet.

Bonding over a mutual love of images, French New Wave legend Varda and celebrated photographer/street artist JR decide to collaborate on a fanciful project, beautiful in its simplicity. Visiting several small French hamlets, they meet local residents, then take their large scale portraits and exhibit them within the village – sometimes on the sides of barns, sometimes outside factory walls. Along the way, they playfully banter. It’s a charming, sweet portrait of both everyday people and of two extraordinary individuals who celebrate them.
