Graffiti HeArt to be Community Partner for CIFF39
Graffiti HeArt is proud to be community partner for the 39th Cleveland International Film Festival and sponsoring the international film, “PIXADORES”, a story about a band of graffiti taggers that scale the skyscrapers of São Paulo by night, routinely facing death.
The CIFF Screenings will be Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 8:10 PM and Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 1:45 PM. Come out to show your support for the arts through this culturally compelling film!
More about the film: “The city offers plenty of walls for their canvases. These PIXADORES started tagging as kids, just playing around. Now they protest against the system and repression. This is the story of Djan, Ricardo, William, and Biscoito, who live in the same favela. They paint to be hated instead of just ignored. They paint so their lives don’t go unnoticed. They surf on fast trains for kicks, their favorite drug adrenaline. Now the unbelievable happens, and the PIXADORES are invited to Berlin to participate in the Biennale exhibition of contemporary art. They’re chosen as representative victims of social inequality who use art as political expression. But when told to restrict their painting to pre-selected walls, the PIXADORES naturally revolt, causing a scandal among well-meaning benefactors. This edgy documentary gets into the hearts and minds of dedicated rebels whose chosen weapon is paint. (In English, Portuguese, and German with subtitles) – B.B.”
