Resistência [Resistance]

A crew of Afro-Brazilian street artists fight to subvert the relics of racism and post-colonial stereotypes.

Resistência is a self-contained short from the film Sou da Bahia [I’m from Bahia]. This largely observational vignette follows Fael and the members of crew ‘071’ through their work on a graffiti project for the canvass.  The commission provides the backdrop for the Fael’s thoughts on art and its role as a tool for resistance.
