This fascinating documentary tracks the evolution of the biggest participatory art project in the world, the wildly popular 'INSIDE OUT'. Travel the globe with French artist JR as he motivates entire communities to define their most important causes with incredibly passionate displays of giant black and white portraits pasted in the street. We witness young and old taking ownership of walls that were previously restricted and in doing so testing the limits of what they thought was possible. In capturing the process, Alastair Siddons creates a glowing testament to the power of image and the role that art can play in transforming communities.

The film premiered in 2013, in the United States in April (at the Tribeca Film Festival and on HBO), in the United Kingdom in October, and in France at the MK2 Bibliothèque in Paris in November of that year. It is currently available for purchase on iTunes in the US, UK and Canada. The French version is planned to be released as a DVD later this year.
