B-Boy Limping

Last night I went to a screening of “Style Wars”

Which I can’t believe I’d never seen before. The Sundance Award-winning hip hop film is  a vibrant and invigorating document of street culture in the early 80s (underlined by an awesomely dry PBS narrator), capturing the breadth of subway graffiti writing before my mayor Ed Koch started scrubbing trains to get rid of it all. The night was held to raise funds for the restoration project to transfer the 16mm film to a high def master. You can donate to the cause here.

After the screening there was a Q&A.

Co-producer Henry Chalfant.

B-boy Crazy Legs and Co.


At the reception after. DJ Kay Slay, a.k.a. Dezzy Dez from the film.

The Step and Repeat.

(If this were a subway car there woulda been room for the “S.” Just sayin’.)
