Watching todays film, it is clearly evident that all around the world graffiti is something that is generally looked down upon with in the political views. However, in the communities of the artists, it is something worth fighting for and looked at as life and freedom. For example, in Berlin if someone is caught "vandalizing" public property, they can spend up to three years in prison or even pay a hefty fine. This proves that many are unexcepting of the aspect of this type of art. Unfortunately, the negative views on graffiti tend to be more prevalent than positive ones although they do exist.
In Cape Town, there is a high level of political warfare. On the film, minorities are treated as lower than others since there is a constant black/white race shuffle. Being involved with graffiti lets them have there own voice and identity inside of a world in which they do not. The artist do believe they make a positive difference in their society in which I agree. A prime example of that is when a few of the cities graffiti artists go to a nearby school a do a mural which is inspirational to the students. On the contrary, Sao Paulo is a city with no governing structure so everyone basically does what they want how they want.
