This is a really interesting project and awesome mural work for a great cause. http://diamondinsidethemovie.wordpress.com
from the Facebook page:
Diamond Inside follows a collective of mural artists from Madrid called Boa Mistura, during their trip to Cape Town, South Africa. The camera follows their time living and interacting with the people from Woodstock and Khayelitsha: a slumtown where lives dwell between the high rates of poverty and AIDS. Boa Mistura represents their own message to the people of Africa, through several murals on different buildings, intending to instill a mindset to get out of the deepest poverty, aiming to “promote change surrounding yourself with images and colors that reflect what you want to achieve”,to future generations. Check out the pictures
This is very powerful stuff and a movement that is inspiring youth all over South Africa right now. Kudos to the artists, because this is a dope project. Hopefully we can all find the diamonds inside of us.
