"Girl Power“ provides astonishing insights into the unknown world of
female graffiti artists in Prague, Europe and the rest of the world. The
film introduces key artists and investigates their motives for asserting
their position in the (male-dominated) scene while also telling the
story of the graffiti art form from its first appearance as tags in
1970s New York City.
Sany is a graffiti artist, based in Prague. She started spraying when
she was 15. “On my way to school new graffiti names appeared every day
along the tram line. That fascinated me. I started to draw on paper and
then moved outdoors with my girlfriends.” The young women founded the
Girl Power crew – and soon encountered prejudice and rejection in the
male-dominated scene. “Go back into the kitchen,” was sprayed over one
of their pieces. Not many women stayed in the Prague scene, and Sany
became the last survivor. However, she knew there were lots of female
writers in other countries and wanted to find out what kept them going.
So she had the idea to visit all these women and make a film about them.
Almost eight years passed until the film was completed. It premiered in
February 2016 in Prague and screened at the One World festival there.
Since then “Girl Power” has been invited to numerous festivals around
This screening was organized in cooperation with One World Berlin and
the Czech Center Berlin, with kind support by Unerhört!
