American University features Faces Places. Legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda Director and photographer/muralist J.R. enjoy a series of meandering road trips through rural France in this poignant and charming documentary. Along the way they create unique cross-generational portraits of the people and places they encounter.

Featured panelists: Peggy Parsons, film curator, National Gallery of Art; and David Pike, chair, AU CAS Department of Litearture. Q&A moderated by Leena Jayaswal, director, AU SOC Photography Program.

Films Across Borders: Stories of Women is a multi-cultural series of cinematic works by and about women. Showcasing 50+ films in 14 venues throughout the DC area from October 5 to December 18, the series highlights the importance of gender-balanced perspectives and gives voice to vital and diverse female viewpoints through dramatic features, documentaries and shorts. Screenings and featured speakers will explore key issues around the female gaze and ways in which women, fighting for equality on screen and behind the camera, raise awareness about key social issues, inspire action and pave the way for stories of other underrepresented populations.
