Street Heroines--the lauded feature-length documentary on the courage and creativity of female street artists--will screen virtually at the 4th annual Montana International (MINT) Film Festival. The event launches today, September 16, in in-person and virtual iterations. In-person screenings conclude Sunday, September 19, while virtual screenings conclude Sunday, October 3. MINT Film Festival connects Montana through film and education around the world, curating a program that showcases films pushing creative, technical, or social boundaries.
With authentic vérité storytelling woven between an interview-driven narrative, Street Heroines juxtaposes the personal experiences of three emerging Latina artists from New York City, Mexico City, and São Paulo as they navigate a male-dominated subculture to establish artistic identities within chaotic urban landscapes.
