GirlPower Sany

22 March, 5.30-8 PM
Film screening & talk at Botkyrka konsthall, Tumba

In the documentary film Girl Power, we follow graffiti artist Sany and her encounters with female writers around the world. It is a personal story that highlights the conflicts of everyday life; the expectations of society and the urge to follow one’s dream.

Sany started filming in 2009 with the aim to make female graffiti artists visible, and to talk about their struggles and stories. It took Sany seven years to complete the film and Girl Power is as much a story about graffiti as about passion and a person who refuses to give up her dream.

Following the screening, there will be a talk between Sany and Nachla Libre who both face preconceived ideas about who could be an artist. The talk will be centred around the essence of the film: sisterhood and solidarity against a male dominated society norm, as well as challenges in juggling everyday life with the love of your art.

Sany is a graffiti artist based in Prague, she has been painting since she was 15 years old. Sany learned filmmaking whilst travelling the world to document female writers and their stories. Girl Power is co-produced with Jan Zajíček.

Nachla Libre is a poet, artist, co-founder and artistic director of Revolution Poetry, a movement bringing young spoken word poets from the Swedish suburban areas to the general public awareness.

The talk is moderated by art historian and writer Macarena Dusant.

The programme is initiated by Macarena Dusant & Åsa Falewicz, and is produced by Macarena Dusant in collaboration with Botkyrka konsthall, Residence Botkyrka and the Czech Centre in Stockholm.
