Buenos Aires, the capital and largest city in Argentina, is known for its beauty but also its tumultuous political history. With their country having oscillated between dictatorship and democracy for over a century, Argentines have endured military rule and state terrorism. But through the creative visions of artists, that history is now shifting as Buenos Aires becomes a famed destination for some of the world’s best murals. Historically, generations of artists and activists have taken to the streets to express their political discontent, filling blank walls and empty public spaces with vibrant images and stories. Today those images serve as powerful historical records and symbols for the people. In this captivating documentary, we meet the artists leading the way in a new and colourful revolution, capturing the story of Argentina and envisioning a brighter future by igniting public space.
