BRECKINRIDGE FESTIVAL OF FILM

 

A groundbreaking documentary that explores the eclectic world of hip-hop and the urban graffiti artist. Interviews and behind the scenes views of 24 of Los Angeles' most prolific and talented graffiti artists bring forth varied conversations, from comparative discussions on graffiti's historical connection to ritualistic hieroglyphics and cave writings to its present-day incarnation as a form of street-level propaganda and public art. One graffiti artist recalls that in grade school he was asked by a teacher what he wanted to be when he grew up, to which he responded, "I want to be either a terrorist or an artist."
