“Wild Style The Sampler” by Charlie Ahearn

25th Anniversary of “Wild Style’s” Theatrical Release

Cinefamily/The Silent Movie Theatre
611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles

In 1982, Charlie Ahearn wrote, directed, and produced a small, independent movie that released a year later. It went on to become the first film to unite the underground urban art forms of hip hop culture (DJing, MCing, b-boying, and graff writing). “Wild Style” is a classic, having inspired countless artists, musicians, and writers with unforgettable scenes starring legendary graffiti writers, DJ’s, MC’s, and b-boys. It’s definitely one of my favorite films.

To celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary, “Wild Style The Sampler” provides an in depth look at the making of the film, it’s release, and the stir it caused around the world. It features never before published photos, original artwork, production stills, and personal stories from stars Fab 5 Freddy, Lee Quinones, Lady Pink, Zephyr, Patti Astor, Busy Bee, Grandmaster Caz, Frosty Freeze, and Glenn O’Brien. You can even get your book signed by Charlie Ahearn at the event!

Stay for the after party on location with DJ Cut Chemist and other guests.
