Video: Sunshine Rebels – Coming of Age in Central Park in the 70's

By - Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Bates just posted this really interesting video on his 12oz blog about the sub-cultures that converged at the Central Park Bandshell in the 1970’s featuring interviews with Zephyr, Bilrock, and Crunch. “Sunshine Rebels tells the story of a group of inner-city teenagers who in the 1970’s came together in New York City’s Central Park and in the process left an indelible stamp on world culture through startling innovations in street art, alternative music and extreme sports. “A coming-of-age story set at the nadir of New York City history, and in the world’s most famous – and at that time infamous – park, abandoned and crumbling amid the city’s collapsed economy, the documentary reveals a unique and colorful 1970’s subculture. The film highlights a family that formed at the Central Park Bandshell, a family that to this day is held together by the ties formed then.”
