JR films

This winter, Forum Groningen will be showing films and documentaries JR has been directly or indirectly involved in. 

JR shot the photo series Portrait of a Generation about the rioting in the banlieus of Paris and photographed the film director Ladj Ly as part of the project. The result was an iconic image that can be seen in Les Misérables (2019), a film that explores tensions between various groups of people in the Montfermeil neighbourhood of Paris. The photograph is on display in the Groninger Museum, and Forum Groningen will screen Les Misérables, which received an Oscar nomination for best foreign film.

Forum Groningen will also show Women are heroes (2010) and Faces Places (2017), which JR made with the director and photographer Agnes Varda.
