Here’s an ANTHROPOLOGICAL DOCUMENTARY on COMMUNITY

Synopsis

Agnès Varda and JR have similarities: passion and questioning on images in general, and more precisely on places and devices used to show them, share them and exhibit them.
Agnès chose cinema. JR chose to create outdoor pastings.
When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately wanted to work together, to shoot a movie in France, far from cities, travelling with JR's (magical) photo truck. Wether it was random encounters or prepared, they opened up to other people, listened to them, photographed them, and sometime pasted them.
The movie also tells the story of their friendship, which grew along the shooting, between surprises and teasing, laughing at their differences.
