This lively doc profiles Martha Cooper (still going strong at 75), the photographer whose pictures of 1970s New York graffiti helped spread the art form across the globe. Valuable for its history as for its visuals; besides graffiti, it also shines a light on breakdancing and other hiphop arts.

In English, Portugese with English subtitles.

"Joyous… eighty of the happiest minutes documentary-lovers are likely to spend in a theater this year." - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
