Hollywood Reporters review:
NEW YORK TIMES: Brazil’s Pied Piper of Street Art
“The ebullient artist is the subject of the new documentary… ‘In terms of productivity and energy, he is really a quite brilliant and facile artist, a Pied Piper who can get people to follow him,’ said Ricardo Barreto, for many years the executive director of the Urban Arts Institute at the Mass. College of Art and Design… Though focused on Mr. Borba, the film also meditates on the nature of the creative impulse, and has attracted the interest of artists of all sorts. The actress Debra Winger, who was so impressed by the film at an early screening that she signed on as an executive producer… called it ‘a wormhole into another world, one that we ought to know but don’t.’”
– Larry Rohter, The New York Times
Burt Sun and André Costantini’s debut film follows a prolific artist leaving no blank wall unpainted in Salvador, Brazil.
“Endearing doc focuses on the pleasure of creating over the rigors of artistry. The debut film from Burt Sun and André Costantini will charm many arthouse patrons, though some highbrow-leaning art lovers will find the subject unworthy of such attention.”
by John DeFore
“mostly upbeat, often humorous. Both art and artist are outsized and entertaining!”
– by Walter Addiego
