Here’s my new film about ephemeral urban intervention performed by Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada in Vitoria-Gasteiz in Basque Country, Spain

Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada transforms common people into icons by rendering them in charcoal as urban murals. By questioning the controls imposed on public space, the role models that represents us in the public space and the type of events that are guarded by the collective memory he breaks preconceptions of where art is permitted, when art is needed and to whom it is directed.

Music created and performed by Txato Martin and Rakel Ventura on a Txalaparta (unique percusion instrument from Basque Country). The musicians and David (the person portrayed) are from Vitoria-Gasteiz.
