STREETARTThe Ephemeral Rebellion
Documentary, D 2009
Runtime: 54 min.
Director: Anne Bürger, Benjamin Cantu
Production: Boekamp & Kriegsheim
Street Art is much more than graffiti. Its messages in public spaces evolve over night on walls, doors and other pieces of “urban furniture”. An urban art form that directly communicates with every passer-by, it makes and leaves strong and provocative comments on today´s society. This character driven documentary composes an eclectic image of the phenomenon of contemporary Street Art through the eyes of some of its best creators and those who discover, collect and love it in Paris, Berlin, New York, London and Moscow. Street Art is wild, alive, popular and irritating. Much more than a rebellion, but rather a truly political artistic expression. The film explains the phenomenon and puts it into a larger cultural context for the audience.
