GIRL POWER - Canberra Screening
Thu. 1 December 2016, 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm AEDT
Girl Power is a documentary that introduces you to female graffiti writers from fifteen cities around the world – from Prague to Moscow, Cape Town, Sydney, Biel, Madrid, Berlin, Toulouse, through Barcelona, all the way to New York. The graffiti community is predominantly a male world - though, Girl Power captures the stories of women and girls who have succeeded in the male graffiti world.

We see them breaking into well-guarded train depots and in their normal “civilian” life. However, Girl Power does more than peer into the microcosm of the graffiti world; it tells the moving story of the Czech writer SANY, who, in 2008, decided to capture the process of female emancipation in graffiti on film and to give other females a chance to express themselves. It took her 7 long years to complete this documentary. We follow her life in graffiti, her motivation and her values as they change with the years.
