Women are Heroes

87mins / 2011 / FRANCE
Canadian Premiere

From Rio’s shanty towns to Kenyan slums, through Indian and Cambodian streets, the legendary French photographer, JR pays tribute to those women who, in spite of the hurdles, keep smiling, keep fighting and keep hoping for a better life. Displaying their portraits via huge montages on their neighborhood’s walls, JR sublimates those extraordinary destinies and sheds light on those strong and moving personalities too rarely given the recognition they deserve.

Women Are Heroes invites you to travel and discover those women who day by day, each in their own particular way, struggle to make their world a better place. Above all, this film is a message of hope, delivered via an extraordinary journey around the world of JR’s art.
