The video piece Les Bosquets takes us to a place where art, social uproar and the power of image collide.
After the ballet Les Bosquets presented by the New York City Ballet (2014), inspired by the 2005 riots in the French ghettos, JR reveals his experience within the community of the Bosquets in Montfermeil, where his first art project (Portrait of a Generation) took place. This film stems from the original project by applying various modes of expression and narration: video archive, choreography and personal testimony.
With music composed by Pharrell Williams, Hans Zimmer and Wookid, JR shows how the desire to exist in these ghettos can overcome the precariousness of life and create beauty where one would no longer expect it.
The movie will be released in 2015.
