About the film:

One of the leaders of the French New Wave cinema era 90-year old Agnes Varda & professional photographer and muralist J.R. partake on a special art project.  Together they travel around France in a special box truck equipped as a portable photo booth and traveling printing facility as they take photographs of people around the country.  Along the way the cinematic veteran and the young artistic idealist enjoy an odd friendship as they chat and explore their views on the world as only they can.
