Sneak Peek: Tour JR's "The Ghost of Ellis Island"

Last fall, JR brought a ghostly life to Ellis Island. Pastings of past Ellis Island staff and immigrants hide throughout the long abandoned hospital building, a landmarked site overlooking the Statue of Liberty and New York City.

We took a tour of the installation in anticipation of the next incarnation of this project - a short film directed by JR entitled The Ghost of Ellis Island.

You can tour the exhibition on Ellis Island by booking a hard hat tour. If you can't make the trek to see it in person, check out our photographs above and on Instagram and see video from the tour on our Snapchat: TribecaFilmFest.
