Street Heroines--the lauded feature-length documentary on the courage and creativity of female street artists--will screen in the heart of Barcelona at the DART Film Festival. The event will take place from November 25th to December 12th, 2021, followed by a Q&A with a special guest, on Sunday December 5th in the renowned street art capital.
Following TooFly, Fusca, and Magrela, Street Heroines captures the spirit of female street artists from around the world, shining a light on their mission for creative expression and their mission to overcome sexism through art. Punctuated by historical anecdotes from pioneering NY-based artists Lady Pink, Claw Money, Swoon, Lady Aiko, and iconic graffiti photographer Martha Cooper, Street Heroines is the first-of-its kind documentary to capture the collective outcry of female street artists from around the world.
Dart Film Festival combines cinema and art in Spain. It honours stories behind some of the most important and interesting artistic movements and people in the 20th and 21st centuries. It is the first documentary film festival dedicated to contemporary art whose main objective is to intertwine culture and knowledge with the general public, and it does so through documentaries on photography, art curatorship, painting, performance, architecture, artistic movements and, in general, on contemporary art, paying special attention to artists, their creative processes and the stories behind their work. The program also includes educational and informative activities, such as talks, visits to art galleries, exhibitions, Q&A and debates.
