Announcing the newly released Graffiti Art Documentary, GV2: Freedom of ExpreSSion? (Graffiti Verite' 2); produced by the multi-award winning Independent Filmmaker Bob Bryan. GV2: Freedom of ExpreSSion? is an exciting and revealing look into the controversial Graffiti Art Movement and the much awaited follow-up to Graffiti Verite', winner of the
National Educational Media Networks "Gold Apple Award, the CINE "Golden Eagle" (and other prestigious awards)" which explores the eclectic world of 24 talented Urban Graffiti Artists.
"This well produced examination of an underground art, explained by the artists who created it, will add a new dimension to art classes and to Library Video Collections. We recommend its use in High School and College Art Classes."
School Library Journal
"We endorse Graffiti Verite' to represent the USA in all International Film Festivals. An American Film about a great American Art Form."
Council of Non-Theatrical Events (CINE)
"Appropriate and useful classroom material."
Committee for the Los Angeles Co. Office of Education
"The colorful, neon like murals seen here (far removed from the ugly gang territory markings) are, rather the brash Picasso's of hip-hop culture."
"The minority Artists are so well represented and come across with such integrity, intelligence, cultural and artistic knowledge . This will do a great deal to help dispel the usually wrong impression that Graffiti Artists are anti-intellectual and unaware of anything other that their own wish to express themselves."
Andrew Connor, Associate Curator, National Museum, Smithsonian Institution
"The work shown here in this video is very impressive, even more so when you consider that the primary tool here is a can of spray paint."
Video Librarian Review
"No longer seen as a mere act of vandalism, Graffiti has evolved into a legitimate art form and is now being recognized for both its artistic merit and its social expression in gallery shows, art magazines and television documentaries."
Air-Brush Action Magazines
"The strength of your videotape is that you focus on the commentary of the Artists...to understand their thinking and what motivates them is really important to an appreciation of this art form."
The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles
"Intelligent and in-depth, it's 45 minutes of art, from Gallery Shows to the stuff on the streets. Graffiti Verite' is sure to open your eyes."
"This documentary helps dispel the prejudices against Graffiti Art and draws the viewer into the world of hip hop through stunning visual imagery."
Airbrush Action Magazine
"Keeping the culture alive!" It includes in-depth interviews with 24 Los Angeles based Graf Artists, going into the history and significance of the Art."
The Source Magazine
"Required viewing for all citizens of big cities that don't understand the significance and impact of Graffiti."
Rap Pages Magazine
"A mind expanding experience in people's - as opposed to commercial culture."
"If you regard Graffiti as defacement of property that gentification should erase-you must see this video!! "
