Filmmaker Justin Jach shows how street art can give a voice to those who are denied the right to have one, in his short film “A Series Of Exchanges” shot in São Paulo, Brazil.
“A Series of Exchanges is a montage-based short film about graffiti functioning as a means of social discourse. When impoverished people are denied a legitimate voice within a society, they develop a new way of speaking. This is how they communicate.
I took many cues from the short film “From Beyrouth With Love” by Waël Nourredine and his examination of the visual and psychological scars left on the city.” – Justin Jach
