Film Screening: REEFA with Cast, Friends, & Family

Celebrates the life and death of a local graffiti artist REEFA who was killed at the hands of the police in 2013. Film director, Jessica Kavana Dornbusch, and Reefa’s family will be in attendance. Q&A with the Director and Alan Ket, founder of the Museum of Graffiti will follow. Film will play in the new outdoor lounge area, staged for the week at Museum of Graffiti. Complimentary Ciroc and Deleon cocktails, as well as snacks with ticket purchase. 

REEFA is based on the true story of Israel “Reefa” Hernandez Jr., an 18-year-old Colombian immigrant and art prodigy, who is spending his last summer in Miami before moving to New York City on an art scholarship. While Israel and his friends skateboard the city streets and spray-paint the walls of Wynwood, Miami’s graffiti Mecca, anxieties emerge twofold: Israel and his family nervously await their Green Cards while he desperately seeks recognition for his art. When Israel decides to spray paint one last wall, a piece which would command immediate respect from his peers, a sudden encounter with a vengeful Miami police officer leaves his family and friends devastated, the Miami community outraged, and the country reeling from another case of police brutality.
