Style Wars is the legendary hip-hop documentary and a timeless film classic, the indispensable record of a golden age of youthful creativity and exploding hip-hop subculture. The urban landscape has been physically transformed by graffiti artists. They invented a new visual language to express both their individuality and the voice of their community.Style Wars captures the look and feel of New York's ramshackle subway system as the graffiti writers' public playground, battleground and spectacular artistic canvas. Opposing them by every means possible were Mayor Edward Koch, the police and the New York Transit Authority. Meanwhile, MCs, DJs and B-Boys were rocking the city with new sounds and new moves, as street corner breakdance battles became performance art.

This is the first ever graffiti film to touch the public eye. A real milstone in history to help people understand the sub cultture of hiphop that is going even stronger today. A real must for any new graffiti writer or anyone who is curious about graffiti. If you enjoy this, look out for KINGS AND TOYZ a 25min documentary of the same genre which left its producer homeless and bankrupt after its 10year making only to be shown on channel 4 a handful of times. A very rare hard to find documentary but a more modern insite into the culture.
