Review Before Charlie Ahearn shot his seminal hip-hop film 'Wild Style' in 1982, he was directly exposed to the bourgeoning hip-hop, break-dancing and graffiti movement, while shooting his super-8 martial arts epic The Deadly Art of Survival around the projects
Wild Style

Review Sigrid Anderssen (Oscar Winner Melissa Leo) is a hot young novelist who has a bad case of writer's block. To clear her mind she answers an ad in the newspaper placed by Red (True Blood's Sam Trammell), a man who is driving cross-country and needs a partner. Along the way, they pick up Red's identical twin brother Tom and three embark on a surreal journey, providing a new outlook on life for Sigrid and more writing material than she ever bargained for. Hear 60's garage music played by the mythic band "The Fabulous Failures" (Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth and Evan Lurie of the Lounge Lizards) lends a creepy narration to this tale of forgotten phantoms.

More than just vintage shots of kids rocking sneakers and savvy street style in Times Square and Fort Greene Park, Shabazz s photographs have hundreds of stories behind them, and Ahearn s film gives voice to these images with intimate interviews with Shabazz himself, graffiti pioneer and hip-hop historian Fred Fab 5 Freddy Brathwaite, legendary rapper KRS-One, and others.
