The challenges of being a female graffiti artists are many, including issues related to safety, harassment while working, as well as territorial push back from male graffiti artists. In her upcoming documentary film, Street Heroines, Alexandra Henry covers the space from the perspective of 25 women artists, providing perspective on how they’ve managed to not just survive but also thrive and influence the space in a game that’s heavily rigged against them.
In the trailer shown here, there is commentary from Lady Pink, TooFly, Elle, Fusca, Gilf!, Danielle Mastrion, Alice Mizrachi, Magrela and Lexi Bella. Below the trailer is a clip from the film focused on Too Fly, who is one of a handful of artist who receive a special focus in the film.
Made under the umbrella of The Creator’s Project and funded in part by a recent pop-up art fundraiser organized by Henry, and a just-completed Kickstarter campaign organized by artists Bella and Mastrion, Street Heroines is aiming for a 2017 release date.
