Film Screening: Style Wars (1983)
Thursday, November 10, 7:00 pm
In the early 1980s, New York street culture became defined by the emergence of graffiti artists, b-boys, and MCs. Style Wars, winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 1984 Sundance Film Festival, shows inspiring new art forms rising from a city in crisis. Victoria Donaldson, Visitor Services Manager at CAM, Cleo Jones of KDHX’s Rawthentic, and founder of Black Cinema Club, will introduce the film and lead a post-screening discussion.
