Lost in Frenchlation is bringing you another 2017 Cannes Film Festival award winning film this Friday 8th September – ‘Visages Villages’, the “unassuming masterpiece” which won L’Œil d’Or (le prix du documentaire) and has received a tonne of critical acclaim with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100%! Drinks from 8pm; screening at 9pm.

‘There may be an age difference of 50 years between Agnes Varda and photographer/muralist JR, but you wouldn’t know it from their collaboration on ‘Faces Places’, playing Out of Competition in Cannes. The duo share a puppy dog energy and curiosity about the world that is evident in every frame of this utterly charming road movie documentary. As they travel across France, an ode to their friendship blossoms into a joyful celebration of the urge to create art and the duty to celebrate life.’ – Screendaily

The screening will take place at the amazing Studio 28 in the heart of Montmartre – Paris’ oldest cinema rooom which is also one of the city’s most iconic. Join us from 8pm for a home-made cocktail available from the bar (€4.50, or €6.00 with a packet of popcorn / snack) before the screening starts at 9pm. Tickets available on the door only – please arrive early to avoid disappointment!

‘Agnes Varda and JR have things in common: their passion for images in general and more particularly questionning 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. The film is also about their friendship that grows during the shooting, between surprises and malice, laughing of their differences.’ – Official synopsis
