Watch Agnès Varda on the Campaign Trail

By Pat Mullen

Start your work week with a smile! Enjoy some joie de vivre thanks to Agnès Varda and JR!

We brought some news a few weeks ago about Varda making a surprise appearance at the Oscar nominees luncheon. The 89-year-old director campaigned for Faces Places from afar when her co-director JR brought several life-sized cardboard Vardas to the event. She was the life of the party, schmoozing and taking selfies with Hollywood’s finest.

It turns out that “Agnès” has been accompanying JR all along while touring with Faces Places in Oscarland. Courtesy of Varda’s Instagram account comes a one-minute highlight reel of Paper Agnès’s tour with many memorable faces in Hollywood places. Enjoy!

And check back Wednesday for our picks on who will win and should win in the Oscar race for Best Documentary!
