PAPER & GLUE, 2021

In Paper & Glue, JR turns the camera on his own work as he builds some of his most monumental projects. From early illicit graffiti videos captured on Paris rooftops at night, to the US-Mexico border, to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, to a current collaboration at a California supermax prison, the film follows JR as he turns these communities inside out, turning images of residents into social and immersive art installations.


After its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in June, the documentary was released in theaters in the USA on 12 November 2021, then on MSNBC on 10 December 2021.
