OS GEMEOS FILM

It gives us great pleasure to announce the screening of one of our favourite Street Art/Graffiti films of late, Cidade Cinza. Kino 1, the cities main cinema will be hosting the screenings as part of this years Nuart Plus series. See Nuart Plus program for more details.

Taking viewers to a city whose graffiti talent is renowned among street-art connoisseurs but less beloved by City Hall, Grey City finds its drama embodied in a huge stretch of wall -- once filled with art, then erased -- leading into a heavily trafficked highway underpass. Marcelo Mesquita and Guilherme Valiengo take this controversy as an excuse to get to know the city's underground stars in a lively doc that will please fans of the global graffiti scene.

Scenes of the intense repainting effort and interviews shot during breaks from work alternate with ride-alongs with a clean-up crew. This gang of outsourced City Hall contractors is a kind of institutionalized art criticism: Having been told to wash grey paint over any tags that aren't "artistic," they decide for themselves which illegal works are pretty and which aren't -- sometimes defacing a composition by wiping out a crucial element that isn't to their liking.

Tickets available here.
