“Les Bosquets” è l’ultimo film di JR ispirato al suo “Portrait of a Generation”e ad altri suoi progetti sul balletto, la colonna sonora è di Hans Zimmer, Pharrell Williams e Woodkid, e sarà proiettato in anteprima  al Tribeca Film Festival, il prossimo Aprile.

Questo film porta il pubblico in un luogo dove l’arte, i tumulti e le rivolte sociali e il potere dell’immagine si incontrano e collidono. Basato sulla performance del balletto Les Bosquets del New York City Ballet (2014) che era ispirato alle rivolte nelle periferie francesi del 2005, JR racconta la sua esperienza nel ghetto di Montfermeil dove ha creato il suo primo progetto “Portrait of a Generation”. Questo film è una continuazione di questo progetto e utilizza diversi mezzi di espressione e narrazione: video di archivio, coreografie e racconti personali.

JR ci mostra come il desiderio di esistere e vivere in questi ghetti possa superare e sconfiggere la precarietà della vita e creare bellezza dove nessuno riuscirebbe a immaginarla e dove nessuno se l’aspetta.
