Faces, Places 2017   Agnès Varda   89 min France   subtitles   Doc
When 89-year-old director Agnès Varda and young photographer/muralist J.R. met, they immediately wanted to work together to make a film in rural France. Traveling in J.R.'s photographic truck, they connected with strangers by listening to them, photographing them, and honoring them; however the real story is the growth of their unlikely but poignant  friendship. Winner of the top documentary award at Cannes. Sponsored by the Vermont Center for Photography.  Preceded by the short: Three Red Sweaters.  TRAILER

Three Red Sweaters 2016   Martha Gregory   10 min USA   Short Doc
With a wealth of archival footage shot by her grandfather, filmmaker Martha Gregory begins a project to examine how our memories are changing now that we have the ability to document every moment of our lives. Do photographs and film help us remember the past or remove us from it? As visual media become ever more ubiquitous, do we need our memories? Are our smart phones a barrier between us and experience?
