The indefatigable Agnès Varda, octogenarian and treasure of world cinema, teams up with the mysterious street artist JR in the delightful Faces Places, an Oscar-nominated docu-travelogue that sees the irresistibly incongruent duo embark on a quest to honour the faces and places of rural France.
The screening is part of an exciting Agnès Varda Season celebrating the multi-faceted works of the pre-eminent filmmaker who recently won the  Honorary Academy Award.

For the past 20 years, French Street Artist DACO has developed his own unique visual identity, which has matured from a classic style to WildStyle, a more complex lettering.

His work is mainly displayed on abandoned factories and Paris’ street walls, but he has also produced work in various countries around the world, including Taiwan, Switzerland, Spain, Chile and Sri Lanka.

Come and discover his latest project Graffaune, a series of graffiti composed of geometrical wild animals, specially created for the Alliance Française Cork and the Alliance Française Dublin.
