As we mentioned in a previous post, French photographer JR’s film “Women Are Heroes” has been selected for the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. Bringing his project full circle, the movie documents his travels around the world photographing victimized and impoverished women and then pasting them up in their own neighborhoods and towns, sending a powerful message of hope and strength.

Take a look at a special print made available for this occasion as well as other planned screening dates after the jump…


On the occasion of the selection and screening of the movie at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival, offers you the opportunity to acquire this lithograph (Free shipping until May 31st, 2010).

We’ll probably catch the film at the Laz screening in LA or at Art Basel Miami but look for yourself at other times you may be able to see the movie for yourself.
