Style Wars (Documentary)

Directed by Tony Silver and produced by Tony Silver and Henry Chalfant, Style Wars is a 1983 documentary that exposes the rich growing subculture of hip-hop that was developing in New York City in the late ’70s and early ’80s, specifically focusing on graffiti art and breakdancing.

Style Wars is regarded as the indispensable document of New York Street culture of the early ’80s, the filmic record of a golden age of youthful creativity that exploded into the world from a city in crisis.
