This summer, enjoy open-air cinema in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden through the film program The Loop, presented by the AAM and Aspen Film. Inspired by Jay DeFeo’s exhibition The Ripple Effect, which examines an icon and her lasting impact on artists today, these films playfully capture the complexities of references and homages. Genres range from fantasy, drama, and musical to documentaries, with stories that take us forward by looping back.

About the Film

Faces Places (2017)
Directed by JR & Agnès Varda
Rated PG

Agnès Varda, a leading figure of French New Wave cinema, and JR, a photographer and muralist, have two things in common: a passion for connecting with people and places. After meeting in 2015, they undertook a journey that began in nostalgia and ended in a new friendship.
