BRATTLEBORO The Backlot Cinema: "Wild Style" (1983) and "Stations of the Elevated (1981): These two films celebrate NYC's early hip-hop & graffiti culture. "Wild Style" is an influential touchstone for hip-hop cinema, directed by Charlie Ahearn. It remains vital and exuberant today for its joyous depiction of a burgeoning DIY cultural moment. "Stations of the Elevated" is the first filmed document of graffiti at a time when it was largely dismissed as vandalism. This richly chromatic 16mm tone poem sets stunning images of the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn to a soundtrack of ambient city noises interwoven with the sounds of jazz titan Charles Mingus. Long regarded by cinephiles and hip-hop fans as an obscure cult masterpiece, Stations of the Elevated remains a priceless portrait of a bygone era of New York City culture. Directed by Manfred Kirchheimer. 8 p.m. doors open. Films begin at dusk. Cuisine by Shital's Vegetarian Indian. As the weather is getting colder, this screening may be the last this year in The Backlot Cinema.
