Fantastic, engaging documentary that will appeal to teens

I thought this was a fantastic up lifting story. I would recommend googling the movie after you watch it to find the interviews with the editors which are fantastic as well. This is an amazing true story. I would classify it as a character study as well as about street art. It is really about following one's passions. Note: As others have said this is abotu street art not grafitii. The language in the film may be an issue for younger kids.
