CAN - by Kaymen Barber

What's up people? -

Last year I had the privilege to work with a film student by the name of Kaymen Barber; a student from The Echo Park Film Center. The Echo Park Film Center is a non-profit media arts organization that is located in the Echo Park. They focus on developing young and local students in film and media.

Anyhow - this is a short film she did for her "Persistence of Vision" class where each student met with various Graffiti Artists and/or Muralists in Los Angeles to talk about the significance of street art in our neighborhood. The film was screened at The Downtown Film Festival In Los Angeles. The tiltle of the film is CAN and it interviews some of my old students from Art Share LA: Jonathan "KILOE", "JANS" and Ivan "AISE". oh...and of course it kinda interviews me too.

Make sure you also check out her other short films such as La Nueva Vida and L.A. River.

Keep your eyes open for her...she has mad talent. Kaymen Barber
