See this film: Wild Style at the MFA

Hip-hop culture was already well established back in 1983 when Charles Ahearn's documentary-style drama Wild Style came out, and even then it was confronting the issues of authenticity and commercialism that it faces today. Here Zoro (Lee Quinones), a Bronx graffiti artist, practices his art on the margins of criminality until lured from the 'hood by tony Manhattan gallery people. Loose, vivid, and compelling, Wild Style captures the scene, helped out by appearances from Fab Five Freddy, Grandmaster Flash, Rock Steady Crew, and the Cold Crush Brothers. It screens at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave, Boston | Sunday, September 25 @ 11 am + 3:25 pm | $11; $9 students, seniors | 617.369.3907 or mfa.org/programs/film
