Previously issued on Plexifilm. "Style Wars is the legendary, real-life action-adventure about the epic battle of New York's graffiti writers to get their art up on the city's subway trains -- the climax of their rolling public art extravaganza that would change the world of art and popular culture forever. The action takes place in the decaying city, at war with the very people dedicated to renewing its greatness -- kids from the streets, rocking the city from its orbit with new letters, sounds and moves. On the frontlines are Dondi, Case 2, Seen, Skeme, Noc 167, Dez, Daze, Duro, Crash, Mare139 and IZ th Wiz, along with Crazy Legs, Ken Swift, Frosty Freeze, Doze and other B-boys of the Rock Steady Crew and the Dynamic Rockers. Opposing them by all means possible are the mayor, the police, and the Transit Authority. Style Wars plunges us into graffiti's own 'style wars' --between 'kings of style' and 'kings of bombing' -- and the struggle to unite against Cap, the infamous rogue writer bent on destruction of everyone else's work. The names they wrote, the battles they fought, are legend. Now the arc of their lives and the measure of their achievements are written anew in the 2-disc Style Wars DVD." This legendary documentary includes a feature commentary and interview by director-producer Tony Silver and producer Henry Chalfant (2002), an interview with Style Wars editor Victor Kanefsky and Sam Pollard (2002), 3.5 hours of bonus features, 32 update interviews, a 30 min. loop of over 200 whole cars & burners, 23 minutes of outtakes, and tributes to Dondi & Shy 147. Featuring music from El-P, RJD2 and Aesop Rock, plus Mr. Wiggle Kimson, "Angola-Red" Albert, and Darryl Jenifer. Directed by Tony Silver, produced by Tony Silver & Henry Chalfant.
