Women Are Heroes
In the Women Are Heroes-project, JR emphasizes the central role of women in society
Paper & Glue premieres exclusively at the Forum!
In Paper & Glue, JR focuses the camera on his own work as he builds some of his most monumental projects. From early illegal graffiti videos shot on the rooftops of Paris at night, to the US-Mexico border, to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and to a current collaboration in a California supermax prison.
The film follows JR as he transforms these communities, turning depictions of residents into striking and immersive art installations.
Several languages spoken, English subtitles.
