The film All City grew out of Henry Chalfant’s desire to produce a youth oriented TV series that touched on the hip hop culture he helped bring to the masses as a producer of the classic documentary Style Wars. Wanting to try his hand at film making, Chalfant began conducting interviews and recording footage with Dondi, Butch, Mare, Brim, and Spank TC5 among others. While the series as planned never made it to fruition, the footage assembled is a window shedding light on all elements of the culture. The music, the movements, the fashion, and, of course, the graffiti is all here.
