WALL WRITERS: GRAFFITI IN ITS INNOCENCE

Book event and Q&A with director Roger Gastman and graffiti artists Taki 183, Mike 171, SJK 171, Lewis and more!

Before Banksy was a household name, a group of pioneers started an artistic revolution that would change the urban landscape forever. Narrated by cult filmmaker John Waters, this documentary looks at the history of the current creative-minded graffiti scene, starting in the turmoil-filled ‘60s in New York and Philadelphia through to the beginning of street art's mainstream acceptance and appreciation in the early ‘70s. Filled with rare archival photos and footage along with exclusive interviews with graffiti legends like Cornbread, Kool Klepto Kidd, Taki 183, Phil T Greek and Greg 69, this exuberant documentary is the latest labor of love from art curator/filmmaker Roger Gastman (producer of THE LEGEND OF COOL “DISCO” DAN, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP). DIR Roger Gastman; SCR/PROD Chris Pape; PROD Joseph Pattisall, Lasse Jarvi, Caleb Neelon, Darin Rowland, Allie Marsiello. U.S., 2015, color, 77 min, DCP. NOT RATED
