From Style Wars to Dirty Handz, a handful of graffiti movies definitely marked the previous decades. But these are hard times for those who still try to release independant movies and documentaries nowadays, since for many, Rapidshare has now become the standart DVD dealer.
Today Montana Colors and All City celebrate the launching of the 94 spraypaint, and take this occasion to support the production of an original movie - and still allow everyone to get it : ‘The MTN Diaries’ is the first graffiti movie to be exclusively released on internet, and available for free in High-Definition through our Vimeo platform. We bet others will follow...
|‘The MTN Diaries’ sticks to the reality of graffiti as it is, and tries without any bias to transcript at its best the energy and raw talent of today’s actors of the scene, whether it’d be in the streets, on trains, on walls or in the galeries. For this first 34mn chapter shot during summer 2009, meet up with Horphe, Tomek, Se and Gues in the streets of Paris / Seen from New York in his parisian workshop / Metro, Afiler and their sidekicks in Belgium train yards / Twist & Amaze from San Francisco on their journey in Lyon for an unusual performance / Pro & Koolfunc GT and Seb FMK painting in their favorite playgrounds / Honet and his guests for a catacomb mission.
For the record, no need to ask us if we do personally know these artists: all video footage was sent to us anonymously; and no, Montana Colors and All City don’t encourage nor support illegal vandalism... Enjoy the show.
