…It’s Movie Monday: Style Wars?

Style Wars

Style Wars is the definitive and legendary hip-hop documentary about the rise and fall of subway graffiti and the golden age of youthful creativity and exploding hip hop subculture in New York in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Awarded the Grand Prize for Documentaries at the 1984 Sundance Film Festival, Tony Scott’s work “captures the look and feel of New York’s ramshackle subway system as the graffiti writers public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas”. If you’ve ever wanted to know a little more about the art that passes you by everyday (and the people behind it), Style Wars is your guide to the culture of the street.
