Les Bosquets

The film Les Bosquets brings the audience in a place where art and 
the power of image interweave. Based on the story of Ladj Ly and 
the performance of the ballet Les Bosquets of New York City Ballet 
(2014) inspired by the riots in the French suburbs in 2005, JR reveals 
its experience in the ghetto of Montfermeil where he created his 
first project, Portrait of a Generation. 
This film is a continuation of this 10 years project, for which he uses 
various means of expression and narration: video archives, 
choreography and testimony. This short film will be presented 
exclusively in galleries and museum shows.
