“Swoon: fearless” is an hour long documentary about Caledonia Curry; aka Swoon, her collaborators, inspirations, and antics.

Woven together with 20 years of footage shot from around the world, the film is an intimate portrait of the street artist.

It reveals the moment she became internationally recognized, what inspires her creatively, socially, and politically, and why none of it matters if she can’t get out on the streets to wheat paste.
