We wanted to make a documentary which was filmed mostly on the streets, shot from the hip, something that reflects the street art itself.
A lot of the story comes from the street artists themselves. They were always generous with their time and information. They developed the process, they wanted this story to be told.
Las Calles Hablan is a story about discovering a hidden world, an extraordinary subculture and the struggle between an artistic community painting for freedom of expression and an increasingly restrictive dogmatic government.

In support for the release of Las Calles Hablan documentary we have organised an online petition to request the government to enter into conversation with the street art community. If you like the film and agree with our position, please sign the petition "Consider street art as a cultural asset for the city"
