E, what, you need a penis to write graffiti?! – Lady Pink
The graffiti community is predominantly a man’s world, and men often share the view that graffiti – namely the illegal kind – is not for girls. And yet women have become increasingly more emancipated in recent years deconstructing this myth of graffiti being only a “male business”.
Girl Power is a documentary that presents female graffiti writers from fifteen cities – from Prague to Moscow, Cape Town, Sydney, Biel, Madrid, Berlin, Toulouse, Barcelona and all the way to New York. Girl Power captures the stories of ladies who have succeeded in the male graffiti world. However, Girl Power is more than just a look into the graffiti microcosm; it tells the moving story of Czech writer Sany, who decided in 2009 to capture female emancipation in graffiti on film and to give other girls and women the possibility to express themselves.
Screening will be held in Zet Pe Te and it will be finished with a cyclic Futudrama party that especially for this ocassion will be held under the “Girl Power” slogan.
