Enter a cross section of 1980s hip-hop-rap-breakdancing-DJ-graffiti culture. With cameos by some of the most important hip-hop musicians of the era, such as Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force, and Grand Master Melle Mel & the Furious Five, the film serves as both cultural document and unabashed camp fun. This film is presented in conjunction Summer Break 2013: Double Portraits and offers new thoughts and histories from the world of graffiti and a chance to revisit classic representations of its early days.
