Additional information

The film features personal, in-depth interviews with numerous artists who reflect on the complexity and depth of their world, alongside street arts, public arts, graffiti arts, and never-before-seen works to illuminate this visual adventure. These artists have developed a voice that speaks to a new generation of street art within the public art movement.

Following the screening (64 minutes), there will be a Q & A with the film director, Weiying Olivia Huang and special guest artist to discuss the making of the film, public art and the street art community.
