CHILE ESTYLE

Pablo Aravena, of Next: a Primer on Urban Art (Canada / France 2007), is planning to make another full-length documentary film: on the booming graffiti scene in his native Chile.  The 10 minute demo of Chile Estyle can be seen on the webpage www.chileestyle.com which is launched today. Check out the interviews with many of Chile´s finest.  The demo was filmed in LA in December, and in Santiago de Chile and Valparaíso in January, i.e. pre the 27 February earthquake.

FUERZA CHILE

Graffiti in Chile is not quaked.  Last week, in Santiago´s Plaza Italia, Guztok of Nadie Crew (Nobody Crew) popped up with ´FUERZA CHILE´ :

Santiago locals liked the girly ´C` and quaking cityscape of the ´L´ in C-H-I-L-E:

Documenting Documentary

So there are quite a few different bits of documentary video floating around about Street Art. Most of them are painfully standard I think. Man does painting, man sits still and talks about painting. If you click the ‘Video Gallery’ tab to the right and scroll to the bottom you’ll see some of our video’s that are a bit doccy (Dr. D vs Brown and Cameron + One Day at Cordy House). We try to do something at least a bit different…

Here is one that was posted on Wooster Collective that does follow the ‘see picture, talk about picture’ format but it’s well constructed, what do you reckon to it?

Also, there’s a new one coming out called ‘New Brow, The Rise of Underground Art’. It’s showing at Westbourne Studios and we’re going to see it this week. Critical judgement will be passed! So check back next week if you could give a flying monkey’s…
