Public Premiere Screening Announced for GRAFFITO, 8/3
GRAFFITO, Soft Cage Films NFP's sophomore production, documents a revolutionary street graffiti artist in Chicago. As he wages a war of aesthetics against the capitalists, unexpected romance threatens to ruin the film. Shot primarily in the Logan Square, Avondale and Bucktown areas with local actors, crew and many iconic Chicago locations, GRAFFITO presents contemporary issues surrounding living and working as a radical artist in Chicago. The film was shot over the last 6 months and seeks to showcase a cross section of the vital and vibrant Chicago artistic community.
Soft Cage's first film, CITY OF LUST is being distributed internationally across all platforms by Maxim Media International.
Soft Cage Films NFP seeks to produce and promote socially relevant films that use experimental techniques to challenge traditional notions of society.
