All The Streets Are Silent

SYNOPSIS: The streets of N.Y. might be temporarily silent, but in downtown Manhattan in the early 90’s, they were the site of a dynamic collision between two vibrant subcultures: skateboarding and hip hop. Jeremy Elkin’s documentary, All The Streets Are Silent, narrated by Eli Morgan Gesner, brings to life the magic of this time period and the convergence that created an urban style and visual language that would have an outsized and lasting cultural effect. If Paris Is Burning and KIDS had a baby, you’d have this documentary love letter to New York—examining race, society, fashion and street culture—and full of archival footage featuring legendary characters and figures from the downtown scene. Featuring ROSARIO DAWSON, HAROLD HUNTER, JUSTIN PIERCE, KEITH HUFNAGEL, DARRYL MCDANIELS (RUN-D.M.C.), JEFFERSON PANG, BOBBITO GARCIA, STRETCH ARMSTRONG, KOOL KEITH, LEO FITZPATRICK, MIKE HERNANDEZ, DJ CLARK KENT, KID CAPRI, MIKE CARROLL, MOBY, FAB 5 FREDDY, PETER BICI, YUKI WATANABE, CLAYTON PATTERSON, BEATRICE DOMOND, TYSHAWN JONES, AND MORE.
