On the short list for Best Documentary Feature at the 2018 Academy Awards!

Agnès Varda, who turned 89 in May 2017 and received an honorary Academy Award the following November, is one of the leading figures of the French New Wave. She co-directs this enchanting documentary/road movie with acclaimed 33-year-old French photographer and muralist JR. Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed, and shared.

In Faces Places, they travel together around the villages of France in JR’s photo truck—meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing epic-size portraits. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts, and trains, revealing the humanity in their subjects and themselves. Faces Places records the heartwarming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendships created along the way.

“Magnificently moving, funny, and altogether wonderful! Agnès Varda and JR are a screen duo for the ages!” —indiewire.com

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
