"White Walls Say Nothing" documentary

“White Walls Say Nothing” is a feature length documentary we are producing about art, activism and expression in the streets of Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires is a city like no other. Its unique culture has been shaped by its turbulent history, creating a city full of contrasts and contradictions. Nowhere is this more evident that in its walls.

graffitimundo was born out of a desire to support the city’s extraordinary urban art scene and the artists who had inspired us. We were captivated by the city walls and the stories each artist had to share with us.

As we began to immerse ourselves in the history of Buenos Aires’ walls we discovered that they did much more than showcase the talents of a generation of young street artists. The walls were a channel for expression, art, activism, propaganda and public opinion. They had been used to challenge dictators, denounce human rights atrocities and had broadcast the stories the media wouldn’t touch.

We have spent three years researching the city’s urban art culture, working with artists, activists, academics and the public to better understand the role the city walls play. We have all made a huge commitment to making this documentary, but have reached the point where we need some financial support to keep going. To help achieve this we’re going to launch a kickstarter campaign which we hope will secure the essential funds we need to cover the cost of producing the film.

For anyone unfamiliar with Kickstarter – it’s a funding platform for creative projects, where rewards are offered to backers in return for their financial support. We have some amazing rewards to offer, including original artwork from some of the scene’s leading artists. We hope you’ll support our project!

We’re currently putting the final touches on the documentary trailer, and will be launching the kickstarter campaign on Monday, 1st of October. More details soon! Until then, here are a few stills from the film…
