MARTHA, A PICTURE STORY
Nuart Festival is honoured to announce, in association with Stavanger Odeon Cinema, the Scandinavian premiere of Martha: A Picture Story, a documentary by Selina Miles.
Martha: A Picture Story
Directed by Selina Miles
Post film Q&A with Martha Cooper and Selina Miles hosted by Evan Pricco of Juxtapoz Magazine !
Join Nuart in conversation with director Selina Miles and Martha Cooper. A unique chance to get up close and personal with the concept and process behind the making of Martha: A Picture Story.
In 1970s New York, photographer Martha Cooper captured some of the first images of graffiti at a time when the city had declared war against it. Three decades after publishing her book, Subway Art, photographer Martha Cooper age 75, discovers she’s become an unexpected icon of one of the biggest art movements in history.
Cooper is a multifaceted creative who trespasses into Berlin’s U-Banh to shoot an illegal graffiti art attack. The film is a kaleidoscopic record of her kinetic output. Although adored by countless fans for her graffiti books that include American b-boys and younger European taggers, Martha: A Picture Story also functions as testament to a female artist who broke new pictorial ground highlighting a grassroots art movement that was later embraced by mainstream culture, while remaining steadfast to be recognized as more than just a graffiti photographer.
Selina Miles is an acclaimed self-taught art documentarian from Australia and long time documentarian of Street Art and Graffiti culture. She has told stories about artists for 10 years. Her hyperlapse video ”Limitless” has garnered 12 millions views online. In 2016 she directed The Wanderers, a 6-part ABC iView series. Martha is her first feature documentary.
