“Pinto Con Lata” is an graffiti documentary about the scene and styles in Caracas, one of Venezuela’s most unsafe places. The official trailer gives some interesting insights into what’s going on on the streets there, showing climbing graffiti writers, tagging while driving in a car and so on…

The documentary will be published in December 2010. I’ll keep you up-to-date!
