The Little Theatre and Rochester Contemporary Art Center present a special one night screening and joint fundraiser.
A new documentary chronicling Italian street artist Blu and their crew as they trek through South America filming their unique form of animated graffiti.
The screening of MEGUNICA by Lorenzo Fonda, preceded by a screening of “Big Bang Big Boom, by stop motion street artist Blu” followed by a talk-back with the director, Lorenzo Fonda which will be led by Tom Gasek (RIT, School of Film and Animation). Attendees will have unique access to Fonda and a rare glimpse into the working habits and lifestyle of renowned and enigmatic stop-motion street artist Blu.
Megunica is the acronym for MExico, GUatemala, NIcaragua, Costa Rica and Argentina. Those are the places Lorenzo Fonda visited alongside artist Blu, his girlfriend Sibe and producer Ivan Merlo. The mission was to create a documentary on Blu’s work by exposing him to new realities and situations, and see how his art would react. The outcome has been a life-changing experience and a film that speaks a universal language.
