Style Wars: New York 1982

Style Wars: New York 1982

I was browsing on Pitchfork (a music review site) and found this 1983 documentary that chronicles the New York City graffiti scene at that time as well as the emergence of hip-hop. In lieu of doing homework, I watched the film (it runs a little longer than an hour and is cut up into 3-4 minute mini-movies that Pitchfork stitches together) and was struck both by the intriguing content as well as the quality cinematography. Since this current term is all about documentary photography and photojournalism, I thought this might be interesting to share.
