Directed by Manfred Kirchheimer | 1981
“A 45-minute proto-hip-hop bliss-out, a masterpiece of train- and tag-spotting.”
—The Village Voice

The earliest filmed document of graffiti, Manfred Kirchheimer’s richly chromatic 16mm city symphony sets images of northern Manhattan to a soundtrack that interweaves ambient city noises with the gutbucket gospel squall of jazz titan Charles Mingus. Long regarded by cinephiles and hip-hop heads as an obscure cult masterpiece since it premiered at the 1981 New York Film Festival, Stations of the Elevated is a celebration of a quintessentially urban art form—at a time when it was largely dismissed as vandalism. This priceless portrait of a bygone era of New York City culture returns after its sold-out screening at this year’s BAMcinemaFest.

At all screenings except the 8pm showtime on Tuesday, October 21, Stations is preceded by Kirchheimer’s short film Claw, a poetic, deeply critical examination of urban renewal. An Artists Public Domain/Cinema Conservancy release, presented by agnes b.
