All The Streets Are Silent

Growing us in being a part of skateboarding culture and having the opportunity to own a skateboard/ record shop during the time this new documentary by Jeremy Elkin that documents skateboarding and hip hop culture in NYC from 1987-1997 was a real treat. All The Streets Are Silent takes a look at downtown Manhattan where two great subcultures collided: skateboarding and hip hop. Narrated by Zoo York founder Eli Gesner and featuring everyone and anyone who was in that scene: Rosario Dawson, Harold Hunter, Justin Pierce, Keith Hufnagel, Darryl McDaniels (Run-D.M.C.), Jefferson Pang, Bobbito Garcia, Stretch Armstrong, Kool Keith, Leo Fitzpatrick, Mike Hernandez, DJ Clark Kent, Kid Capri, Mike Carroll, Moby, Fab 5 Freddy, Peter Bici, Yuki Watanabe, Clayton Patterson, Beatrice Domond, Tyshawn Jones, and more! Street style was created through skateboarding, the music that came from Club Mars to the streets, and the film takes a look at how these styles went on to change the world. From the origins of Supreme to world recognition and a movement, the convergence of skate/ hip hop culture has changed the world for the better. See the revolution through the eyes of the people that were there to create it and live it. Plus the soundtrack is by Large Professor, so seriously, how can that be bad? Check the trailer and jump on your Harold Hunter deck and kickflip your way to the theater. Out now.
