Film phase: Production

SYNOPSIS

PC594 is the California penal code section that describes crimes against property —including painting beautiful images on dilapidated walls. LA street artist Lydia Emily engages in biodegradable, non-violent, political protest on government and corporate real estate. She’s conquered innumerable challenges, but now a crippling diagnosis threatens to change everything.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Newsweek recently named Libby as one of 150 Women Who Shake the World, alongside Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton. She is a filmmaker who uses her art as a vehicle to bridge gaps and provide access to places and people that would otherwise not converge or be seen. Her 2010 film Playground, produced by Abigail Disney, George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh, illuminates the underground epidemic of children forced into prostitution in the US. Since its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, it has won critical acclaim and screenings around the world.
