Style Wars



This film is directed by Tony Silver and co-produced by Henrey Chalfant which wins a prize. The broadcasted version of the film was provided to PBS in 1983. In the film Graffiti artists physically altered the urban landscape and created a new visual language to convey the voice of their community and their individuality.

The tumbledown subway system of New York is their public playground, battleground and extravaganza artistic canvas. We see the conversion of street corner break-dance battles into performance arts, as the MC’s DJ’s and B-boys rock the city with new moves and sounds.
