Going Where No Graffiti Movie Has Gone Before

In this follow-up to his explosive street art documentary Bomb It, Director Jon Reiss travels to Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and beyond, exploring local graffiti scenes and speaking to local artists. Graffiti and street artists featured include Ash Keating, Bon, Great Bates, Husk Mit Navn, Klone, Know Hope, Phibs, Stormie Mills, Vexta, Victor Ash, Xeme, and many others. 'I am continually inspired to explore the world's vibrant graffiti and street art communities, which flourish in some of the most unlikely places,' says Bomb It 2 Director Jon Reiss, 'Wherever I go the need to express oneself in public is a constant, despite the potential risks.' In Bomb It 2, the follow-up to the explosive 2007 global graffiti documentary Bomb It, Reiss takes audiences to previously unexplored areas of the Middle East, Europe, Asia, the United States, and Australia on a hunt for innovative street art and artists. In the Middle East, Reiss talks with Muhnned Alazzh where Alazzh emphasizes the cultural and political significance of writing on the wall in Palestinian refugee camps. In Jakarta, Indonesia, Darbotz paints his signature squid monsters in black and white, to distinguish them from the explosion of color on the Jakarta streets. In Singapore, Reiss connects with street artists Zero and Killer Gerbil, who explain the paradox of doing graffiti in one of the most highly policed states in the world. 'I am particularly fascinated in how each culture (and each person) takes this art form and makes it their own - how the local culture affects the development of graffiti in each place that I have visited,' says Reiss, 'Tel Aviv and the refugee camps of Bethlehem couldn't be more different. The former is on the verge of a street art explosion similar to Barcelona in the early '90s. In the West Bank, graffiti is much more about a political statement and 'art' is often viewed as reconciliation.'
