This screening is organized by ALL CITY, an exhibit currently at La Mano Grafica which features Los Angeles artists Risk, Cache, Vyal, Sand, Eyeone, Klepdo and Plek. Curated by Mario Davila and Sandra P., the artists in this exhibit were selected for their incredible ability to continually get their art up throughout Los Angeles, to go "all city".
