What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this fascinating documentary features street artists whom some may label as subversive; their work is incredible and dynamic, but some consider them vandals. Also, questions have been raised about the veracity of the film's lead subject, though that actually heightens the interest in watching it. Expect some swearing ("f--k" and "s--t") and an examination of a type of art that purposefully crosses a line -- a point that might intrigue some teens.
- Families can talk about street art: What makes it so compelling? What do the artists get out of creating it? What do viewers get?
- Is graffiti vandalism or art?
- What about the documentary filmmaker, Thierry, whose work is central to the film? What kind of artist is he?
