MTV Documentary Films has set the release of “Art & Krimes By Krimes”, a documentary featuring visual artists Jesse Krimes, Russell Craig, Jared Owens, Gilberto Rivera.
The film is set for release on theaters starting Friday, September 30 in New York at Quad Cinema, and Los Angeles at Laemmle Monica Film Center.
While locked up for six years in federal prison, artist Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art—including an astonishing 30-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. He smuggles out each panel piece-by-piece with the help of fellow artists, only seeing the mural in totality upon coming home.
As Jesse’s work captures the art world’s attention, he struggles to adjust to life outside, living with the threat that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.
The film is directed by Alysa Nahmias and produced by Alysa Nahmias, Amanda Spain, Benjamin Murray and executive produced by Sheila Nevins.
