In his film Women Are Heroes, photographer JR takes his audience into some exceptional women’s lives.
Because there are, most of the time, the first victims in war-time and left to their own during peace-time, JR pays tribute to those women who, in spite of the hurdles, keep smiling, keep fighting and keep hoping a better life.
From Rio’s shantytowns to Kenyan slums, passing by Indian and Cambodian streets, he offers a fresh look at their struggles and expectations.
Displaying their portraits via huge montages on their neighborhood’s walls, JR sublimates those extraordinary destinies and sheds the lights on those strong and moving personalities, too rarely recognized enough.
Women Are Heroes invites you to travel and discover those women, who, day by day and each one with a particular way, struggle to make this world better.
Before all, this film is a message of hope and a real travel through JR’s art.
