Description: The addition to the main documentary uploaded previously (http://youtu.be/TDmpJoxvqaY). This documentary on subway graffiti in New York City in the early 1980's had it all: It was beautifully shot, had a great soundtrack, and captured the essence of what was going on in the city after the 70s and under the regime of Mayor Koch. The best thing about this film is how it can be studied on so many levels.It makes you realize why "writing" was done and what it accomplishes. It helps you to understand the psychological reasoning behind it, and how it plays on human character traits such as territorial rights, pursuit and the need for a true recognition. It shows how graffiti had a strong impact on society, and how it tore some homes apart. A must see, and a great representation of the early hiphop music and the life of writers, breakers, MC's and DJ's. Enjoy this as much as I did.
