Dir. and Prod. Tony Silver, Prod. Henry Chalfant

Style Wars received the Grand Prize for Documentaries at the 1983 Sundance Film Festival. More than a document of New York Street culture of the early 80’s, it positions the messiahs of graffiti and b-boy culture at the opposing end of a battle with Mayor Edward Koch, the police, and the New York Transit Authority. Style Wars captures the spirit of hip-hop and preserves the moment cardboard boxes set the stage for breakdance battles and tagging transformed New York City subway tunnels and playgrounds into an artist’s canvas. Q & A with producer Henry Chalfant and graffiti artists from the film.
