MTV Documentary Films debuted the official trailer for Art & Krimes by Krimes, the documentary on artist Jesse Krimes who secretly created works of art while locked up in federal prison.
Directed by Alysa Nahmias, the documentary opens in theaters starting Friday, September 30 New York at Quad Cinema, 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.
Featuring visual artists Jesse Krimes, Russell Craig, Jared Owens, Gilberto Rivera.
