POTSDAM – The 2017 French film “Faces Places / Visages Villages” will be screened for the next installment of Cinema 10 Monday, Feb. 12.

A.O. Scott (New York Times) says Varda invites us to “reflect on the passage of time and the nature of memory, on the mutability of friendship and the durability of art, on the dignity of labor and the fate of the European working class.”
David Ehrlich of IndieWire calls it ‘magnificently moving, funny, life-affirming, and altogether wonderful.”
The film is rated PG for some brief nudity and thematic elements.
