Street Heroines juxtaposes the personal experiences of three emerging female Latin American street artists struggling to establish their artistic identities in the male-dominated world of graffiti and street art. The documentary follows Toofly in New York, Fusca in Mexico City, and Magrela in São Paulo, while exploring the underside of these chaotic urban centres and exposing the universal obstacles that women artists encounter. Punctuated with historical anecdotes from pioneering artists Lady Pink, Claw Money, Nina Pandolfo, Swoon, and Lady Aiko and by iconic graffiti photographer Martha Cooper, Street Heroines unveils the collective outcry of female street artists around the world.
