    Streets of Wynwood Once a year, when the Art Basel fair comes to Miami, street artists from across the globe converge on the city's Wynwood neighborhood to create and compete. Each December, the walls of this former warehouse district are spectacularly transformed as new works by the world's best taggers, graffiti writers and muralists are painted over prior exhibits. STREETS OF WYNWOOD takes viewers inside this fascinating yet little-known global subculture that spans the artistic gamut from "tagging" and graffiti to towering murals of astonishing quality. Some works might endure for years, while others vanish or are defaced within days of completion. Filmed during recent Art Basel Miami festivals, the documentary is both an immersive journey into an eye-popping street art jamboree, unparalleled in any other city, and a thoughtful exploration of a burgeoning artistic movement where internationally renowned artists such as America's Shepard Fairey, Brazil's Eduardo Kobra, South Africa's Faith 47th and the mysterious Londoner known as Banksy are highly sought after by art collectors, galleries and museums. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
