Trailer: "Wall Writers" True Graffiti History 1967-1972 Directed by Roger Gastman

By - Saturday, March 31st, 2012

This new documentary by Roger Gastman looks like it’s going to be incredible! Speaking to a slew of graffiti writers from the first generation who started it all, this documentary tells the tale of the birth of the movement. Official statement: From director Roger Gastman—a producer of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop—comes Wall Writers, a documentary on graffiti in its innocence. Through unprecedented access to TAKI 183, CORNBREAD, and a host of other legendary writers, Wall Writers tells the story of a time when underprivileged city kids refused to keep lurking in the shadows, when the streets were so wild that fame and infamy became indistinct, when art became a democracy and self-promotion became an art. And the narration is done by John Waters! {image-1}
