“once you start on the road to emancipation you have to keep going….
‘Women Are Heroes’ celebrates the heroism of women living through hardship and conflict. Created by French photographer and ‘urban artivist’ JR, Women Are Heroes is a powerful and provocative project that gives identity and a voice to the women of Africa, Brazil, India and Cambodia who are often victims of wartime, crime, assault, and political extremism.
“In Women Are Heroes, JR introduces us to women who sometimes look death in the face, who go from laughter to tears, who are generous, have nothing and yet share, who have had a painful past and longing to build a happy future. This is the trailer of the feature documentary film released in France in 2010.”
