Screening: "Vigilante Vigilante" Coming to NYC

By - Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

This looks so good! We had been hearing about this film for some time now and are psyched to see that it is finally coming to New York. Vigilante Vigilante is not your typical graffiti film, rather it shifts the focus off the graffiti writers and onto the buff. Interviewing the most notorious graffiti removers from across the country including The Graffiti Guerilla from Los Angeles, formerly featured in the film Infamy, and The Grey Ghost from New Orleans, who was famously depicted in works by Banksy (posted below.) The filmmakers turn the tables tracking down these buffers begging the question “who are the real vandals?” {image-1} “A new breed of crime-fighter now stalks the urban landscape: the anti-graffiti vigilante. These dedicated blight warriors stop at nothing to rid their neighborhoods and cities of street art, stickers, tags, and posters. Yet several of these vigilantes have become the very menace they set out to eliminate. In their relentless attempt to stamp out graffiti, they have turned to illegally and destructively painting other people’s property. VIGILANTE VIGILANTE is the story of two filmmakers who set out to expose these mysterious characters and discover a battle of expression that stretches from the streets to academia.” {image-2} 2 night screening at the Maysles Cinema!
