Jeremy Elkin‘s feature-length documentary about the convergence of skateboarding and hip hop back in the day is coming out next month, and he was definitely the perfect guy to helm this project. His ‘Poisonous Products’, heavily influenced by the Zoo York Mixtape video, was both a throwback and a perfect time capsule of 2010-era skating in NYC; the trailer for All The Streets Are Silent, released today, has the same energetic vibe. Here’s the caption from the trailer’s YouTube page:
“In the late ’80s and early ’90s, the streets of downtown Manhattan were the site of a collision between two vibrant subcultures: skateboarding and hip hop. Narrated by Zoo York co-founder Eli Gesner with an original score by legendary hip-hop producer Large Professor (Nas, A Tribe Called Quest), All the Streets Are Silent brings to life the magic of the time period and the convergence that created a style and visual language that would have an outsized and enduring cultural effect.”
All The Streets Are Silent features 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 many more. The movie comes out July 23.
