The premiere of ‘JDL Behind the Wall’ is scheduled for October 2nd at the Ketelhuis in Amsterdam. The documentary follows renowned street artist Judith de Leeuw as she paints her mural in Taranto, southern Italy. While her murals usually deal with social themes and the underprivileged, the wall in Italy transformed into a deeply personal journey for the artist.

Screenings of the documentary will continue throughout the months of October to December, so stay tuned for dates and news! The documentary is a Dutch Public TV production in collaboration with Interakt for ‘Close-Up / AVRO-Tros’.
