Laura Flanders Presents 'Bomb It: Global Graffiti and the Battle for Public Space'

It is harder and harder to find public space free of advertising or corporate ownership. Go to an art gallery or museum a movie theater or even your public school and you'll find the familiar logos that have come to define so much of who we are. There are ads everywhere. We've been branded.

But public space is always being contested. In the documentary Bomb It, filmmaker Jon Reiss follows artists on five continents as they battle for control over the urban visual landscape. Can corporate space be reclaimed? And who gets to determine what we look at today? See "the making of" Bomb It on the flip side.
