“Martha” is a feature documentary film following the life and work of iconic New York City photographer Martha Cooper. In the 1970s, as the boroughs of New York City burned, Martha Cooper was one of the handful of photographers documenting the first vivid images of a burgeoning graffiti scene. 30 years later, her book “Subway Art” would become one of the most sold - and stolen -  art books of all time. Her images catalysed a global art movement that permeated boundaries of time, language and culture.
