Agnès Varda and JR have points in common: passion and questioning about images in general and more precisely about the places and devices for showing, sharing and exhibiting them.
Agnès has chosen cinema.
JR has chosen to create open-air photo galleries.
When Agnès and JR met in 2015, they immediately felt like working together, shooting a film in France, far from the cities, travelling with JR’s (and magical) photographic truck.
Chance encounters or prepared projects, they went towards others, listened to them, photographed them and sometimes displayed them.
The film also tells the story of their friendship that grew during the shooting, between surprises and teasing, laughing at the differences.
