If These Walls Could Talk (6 epsiodes)
A web-series that takes a closer look at the practice of some of New Zealand’s best street art and graffiti artists. Created and presented by Ross Liew (from the much vaunted Cut Collective), If These Walls Could Talk focuses on five street artists looking at what compels them to paint outside, what drives them artistically, and how they navigate identity, community, ownership and the creative process.

Sid is a documentary maker who has never made a documentary. He’s just been given loads of money by the Woodville Arts Council (WAC). They want him to go out and make a documentary about how the people of Woodville took on the might of the Belgian Petrochemical Corporation, and won. Kind of like that Erin Brockovich lady. With less, y’know, cleavage.
