Description

As part of GRCC and GVSU's 2019 Tournées French Film Festival, the French film "Faces, Places" / "Visages, villages" will be screened at GVSU's Loosemore Auditoreium starting at 4:30 p.m. November 16th.  Loosemore Auditorium is located on the Pew Campus, near the international flags visible from Fulton Street. Parking is free in the adjacent DeVos lot, or the Seward Lot across the street.

Tournées films are in French with subtitles in English and free and open to the general public. Bring a friend! Venez nombreux! 

"Faces, Places" brings together famous veteran Nouvelle Vague filmmaker Agnès Varda with the young experimental artist and photographer JR. They travel together across France in an exploration of image and reality, of passing time and of time standing still. Agnès Varda passed away earlier this year: our screening of this film here at the Tournées Festival is a tribute to her many contributions to movie-making and story-telling. The film is rated PG.

Note that this showing is part of a double-feature: another film will follow at 7:30 p.m. at the same location.

Tournées Film Festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S., the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC), the French American Cultural Fund, Florence Gould Foundation and Highbrow Entertainment.
