Sany (Czech Republic)
Sany is the writer/director/producer of the film Girl Power, a documentary that presents female graffiti writers from fifteen cities – from Prague to Moscow, Cape Town, Sydney, Biel, Madrid, Berlin, Toulouse, Barcelona and all the way to New York. The graffiti community is predominantly a man’s world, and men often share the view that graffiti – namely the illegal kind – is not for girls. And yet women have become increasingly more emancipated in recent years; there are female graffiti shows, magazines and websites. Girl Power captures the stories of ladies who have succeeded in the male graffiti world.
Sany studied marketing communication. She actively participates in organizing cultural events in Prague and abroad. She has produced several big festivals and is one the only female graffiti writers in the Czech Republic. She has devoted herself to graffiti for 15 years.
