First of all, 'PICHACAO' is not graffiti. It is something distinct that only happens in Brazil. What a subversion is to sign the city with your own made-up name, especially a city that seems not to be projected for you? Lights, Camera, 'PICHACAO' is a documentary with the presence of only 'pichadors', seeing that it is the 'pichador' voice, his histories, his typography, which compose them entirely. So, focused especially on the 'PICHACAO' from Rio de Janeiro, this documentary proposes a sympathy with what, at a first view, is incomprehensible, and because of that, a target for violence. A film that is interested in common afflictions of a contemporary peripherized and urban youth. How much of a 'pichador' is inside of all of us?
