Screening - STYLE WARS: THE ORIGINAL HIP HOP DOCUMENTARY (1983)

Directed by Tony Silver and produced by Tony Silver and Henry Chalfant, STYLE WARS captured the look and feel of New York’s ramshackle subway system as graffiti writers’ public playground, battleground and spectacular artistic canvas. Opposing them by every means possible were Mayor Edward Koch, the police, and the New York Transit Authority. Meanwhile MCs, DJs and B-boys rocked the city with new sounds and new moves and street corner breakdance battles evolved into performance art.

New York’s legendary kings of graffiti and b-boys own a special place in the hip hop pantheon. STYLE WARS has become an emblem of the original, embracing spirit of hip hop as it reached out across the world from underground tunnels, uptown streets, clubs and playgrounds.

Doors open at 19.00 / Order of the evening TBC / **Age Restriction: 12 and up**
