WRITERS – 20 ans de Graff à Paris

Posted by on 05/31/2010 | Category : Documentaries - Archives / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

WRITERS is the documentary about the history of graffiti in PARIS during 1983 to 2003. It’s like a frenchy STYLE WARS with a focus on the oldschool and also on the newschool activists. This summary of 20 years is very interesting to understand the evolution of the movement : the happiness of the discovery to a hardcore battle. Inspired by New York, connected with England and Germany, PARIS is known to have created the basement of 90’s European style. Like a Bible, this documentary explains the classic legacy of graffiti. The documentary is written by a disciple with a non-objective point of view however he has really honored the lovers of letters and that’s the most important. If it’s always necessary to start a culture by respecting the foundation…later it’s better to commit a sin : to break the rules and write the future! But Sometimes it’s good to trust again in the utopia of the purist version :

“They don’t like it because they don’t hear it” SCAPE ONE

DARKBEAT is THE documentary about the history of electro culture like we love. “The film expands on the past, present and future uses of technology and its influence that have defined sounds of groundbreaking acts and future generations of producers”
The documentary is produced by an expert called IRIS B. CEGARRA of Moloko Pussycat Factory & 3GZ productions. I want to highlight this because the women are better than men to make a clear & dynamic summarization. The film is not too technical, not only for the purists, just available to everyone and good to convert new listeners…

HERE THE TRAILER & AN EXTRACT :

Director : IRIS B. CEGARRA // Motions and Artwork : AS1
// Film Released in 2006 // Time : 60 min
Featured : a lot of underground artists from Finland, France, Belgium, Holand, Spain, UK, US …
