Movies at SAAM: Street Heroines

Street Heroines is a documentary film that looks at the courage and creativity of female street artists from around the world. From New York City, where Lady Pink and Claw $$ paved the way for female artists to use the streets as canvas, to São Paulo and Mexico City, Street Heroines gives voice to women fighting social injustice with creativity in a male-dominated subculture. A conversation with the film’s director, Alexandria Henry, follows the screening.
Rated NR (50 minutes; 2018).
