What: Scion Route 06: Independent Film Series - "NEXT: A PRIMER ON URBAN PAINTING"
A four-month long, six city tour bringing together four of the best and brightest upcoming filmmakers with an exciting lineup of award winning independent films. Each film centers on a different theme growing out of the afrobeat, hip-hop and street art cultures. Each film was selected for its groundbreaking style, originality, subject matter and cast. Each event starts at 8pm with a cocktail hour, followed by the screening and then all
guests are invited to stay for a Q&A session with the director.
NEXT: A PRIMER ON URBAN PAINTING, feature-length documentary film, is a personal exploration of this painting world. It will publicize and give these important emerging and established artists their due. The trailblazers like Lee Quiñones and Doze Green are given their proper treatment within contemporary art history. It also profiles the next generation of artists that are beginning to make their mark. The movement is explored and defined including its connection to late 20th century and early 21st century societies in nine countries including USA, Canada, France, Holland, Germany, England, Spain, Japan and Brazil. A combination of “vérité” moments and interviews with painters, “writers”, designers, documentarians and other participants within the subculture, NEXT conveys the dynamism and creative energy of this significant emerging artistic movement.
