SYNOPSIS

 

An artist collective painting murals in Sandtown-Winchester – an African-American neighborhood in the city of Baltimore, Maryland – demonstrates the rage, indignation and hope of its residents. Confronting major social traumas with courage and creativity, their actions shed a light on racism, repressive measures and the calls for social justice such as the ones following the death of Freddie Gray, a young African-American from the neighborhood who was assassinated by the police. The Sandtown murals show the reactions of this community against police brutality, as well as the racial and ethnic tensions that continue to have a strong presence in the city. French photographer Léa Eouzan documented the work by these muralists, portraying the artists who hit the streets in order to protest and to take a stand for social change.
