Wall Writers is a feature-length a documentary on graffiti in its innocence, focusing on the legendary writers of 1967 – 1972. Narrated by John Waters, Wall Writers tells the story of a time when underprivileged city kids refused to keep lurking in the shadows, when the streets were so wild that fame and infamy became indistinct, when art became a democracy and self-promotion became an art.
The film uncovers the origins of wall writing in New York City and Philadelphia and features unprecedented access and exclusive interviews with graffiti legends such as TAKI 183, CORNBREAD, KOOL KLEPTO KIDD, TAKI 183, PHIL T GREEK, GREG 69, and many others. Testimonies from journalists, historians and politicians who bore witness to the wall-writing revolution along with interviews are coupled with rare photographs and archival footage from the late 1960s and early 1970s, most of which have never been seen before. Roger Gastman produced and directed the film, which is currently in post-production and in development to accompany a large museum exhibit and book.
