Bomb It, The Movie, In New Orleans!

BOMB IT
Tuesday, June 10
7:30pm
Contemporary Arts Center - 900 Camp St.

**Director Jon Reiss will be in attendance and do a Q&A!

BOMB IT is the explosive new documentary from award-winning director Jon Reiss investigating the most subversive and controversial art form currently shaping international youth culture: graffiti.

Through interviews and guerilla footage of graffiti writers in action on 5 continents, BOMB IT tells the story of graffiti from its origins in prehistoric cave paintings thru its notorious explosion in New York City during the 70's and 80's, then follows the flames as they paint the globe. Featuring old school legends and current favorites such as Taki 183, Cornbread, Stay High 149, T-Kid, Cope 2, Zephyr, Revs, Os Gemeos, KET, Chino, Shepard Fairey, Revok, and Mear One. This cutting edge documentary tracks down today's most innovative and pervasive street artists as they battle for control over the urban visual landscape.

Reiss and producer/DP Tracy Wares traveled to five continents over the last two years amassing 400 hours of footage interviewing people from every conceivable walk of life - from the ghettos of Philadelphia and New York City to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Hamburg, Cape Town South Africa, Sao Paulo Brazil, Tokyo Japan and back to Los Angeles, California.

The film shows how each city throughout the world has its own unique issues and personalities in relationship to graffiti and street art. Also importantly, the film focuses on the universal themes of humankind’s historic urge to write on walls, and the growing worldwide battle over who controls public space.
