OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tomorrow 4608 will release their first issue of the 4608 magazine.

The release is at Beijing8, Hornstull, June 18th, 19:00.

BRUS – Versus Pangea Brown

This last episode of our VERSUS project is like taken from a dream. Our favorite Roman writer, Brus, gets involved with Pangea Brown (Marrón Pangea) from our HARDCORE 2’s with his unmatchable wildstyle.

Trailer – Stations of the Elevated

http://vimeo.com/97842566

The first ever filmed document of graffiti, Manfred Kirchheimer’s richly chromatic 16mm tone poem sets images of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn to a soundtrack that interweaves ambient city noises with the gutbucket gospel sound of jazz titan Charles Mingus. Long regarded by cinephiles and hip-hop heads as an obscure cult masterpiece since it premiered at the 1981 New York Film Festival, Stations of the Elevated is a celebration of a quintessentially urban art form—at a time when it was largely dismissed as vandalism. With lyrical shots of tagged trains, desolate rail yards, and other details of the urban landscape, it remains a priceless portrait of a bygone era of New York City culture. World premiere of a new restoration. An Artists Public Domain/Cinema Conservancy release.
The first screening: Friday, June 27. BAM Harvey Theater, 651 Fulton St Brooklyn, NYC.
