Take a trip to the streets of San Francisco for a fascinating look at twenty years of graffiti culture in this documentary from filmmaker Nic Hill. Some consider this stylized brand of street art an urban landscape eyesore, while others view it as a colorful expression of life in the city. Whatever side of the fence you fall on, Hill offers an informative take on the history of urban art by exploring the culture from which it has emerged, and offering informative interviews with the artists themselves.
