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