About the film:
Olhar Instigado (2017, Chico Gomes, Felipe Lion)
São Paulo, the economic capital of Brazil, a city of contradictions and paradoxes, an urban piece of a country whose public space is built and structured through the divergences and convergences
that exist among its inhabitants. In this context, three artists seek to take ownership of the public space. Olhar Instigado (Instigated Look) documents their vision and their artistic practices on the streets of the largest city in South America. One of them is Bruno Rodrigues who will talk about the meaning and origin of Pixação and his own practice as Pichadores.
