Why watch this film?

Eduardo Kobra is one of the biggest names in Brazilian art today, taking his graffiti to all four corners of the world. 'Kobra Self-Portrait', by filmmaker Lina Chamie ('São Silvestre'), celebrates the artist's history and, above all, shows how his strokes are spreading beyond São Paulo. Although it does not have the genius of a film like 'Waste Extraordinary', the feature film knows how to celebrate an artist on the rise and show, above all, how art can be seen in its various facets.
