Director Selina Miles follows iconic graffiti photographer Martha Cooper for a year and a half in this documentary portrait.

"Selina Miles’ film is a portrait of photographer Martha Cooper, who, with inimitable energy and a sharp eye recorded images of New York City in the 1970s and 1980s — eras when the city’s vibrancy was deemed dangerous. Cooper’s images of graffiti and hip hop culture showcased a joyous street life that now exists simply as frozen smiles in a city transformed by real estate greed."
