This year’s Projecting Change opens with a film that tracks the evolution of the biggest participatory art project in the world, INSIDE OUT. This film has already inspired many Vancouverites to share their portraits in a stance to reveal their untold stories; and will continue to do so as more and more locals are touched by the project.
Take a look at INSIDE OUT coming to life in Vancouver:
INSIDE OUT is a movement inspired by French artist JR; who, as the documentary depicts, motivates entire communities to show their most important causes with incredibly passionate displays of giant black and white portraits pasted in public.
This is a film that sees a powerful global initiative take shape as young and old take ownership of walls that were previously restricted; and through their action, test the limits of what was originally thought impossible.
Directed by Alastair Siddon, the film is that demonstrates the power of image and the role that art plays in transforming communities.
