Part of the ‘A Cinematic Odyssey: Postcards from Europe’ strand.

In her first film for almost a decade and her first with a co-director, Agnès Varda explores, as the title suggests, the dynamic relationship between people and place.


In a film that seeks to reclaim the invisible and the disenfranchised, Varda and JR travel across France avoiding its cities and main roads, visiting instead its small villages and towns, in a project to photograph locals in their locales.


The resultant images are displayed, large-scale, in public – on the walls of houses, on giant shipping containers and on the sides of trains – producing spaces and objects that become strangely personified in the process.


Varda’s films have always been markedly self-reflexive, considering the act of artistic creation and the relationship between filmmaker and subject and here it is photography that provides the medium for this reflection.


In an act of cinematic memory, the photographing and exhibition of people in specific places returns us to cinema’s earliest period when filmmakers would shoot ‘factory gate’ films to screen to the workers for entertainment and the pleasure of self-recognition. In revisiting and remembering some of the people and places that form her own history, Varda reflects on art, life and death in this warm and wise film.


The film will be introduced by Dr Paul Sutton, who will stay for the end of the film for a post-screening discussion in the front-tier of the downstairs seating area.
