Wild Style is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Charlie Ahern’s ground breaking hip hop film will re-open next Friday, Nov. 14th for one week only at the Film Forum.

November 14-20
Showtime: 10:00 ONLY

*Director Charlie Ahearn & guests will be in person at 10:00 screenings of Wild Style on both Friday and Saturday, November 14 & 15.

Ahearn will sign copies of his l new book, Wild Style The Sampler, in the Film Forum lobby beginning at 9:00p.

In 1983 elusive graffitist Zoro (legendary artist Lee Quinones) has the South Bronx and the whole NYC subway system for a canvas, but fame threatens to blow his cover.

Indie filmmaker Charlie Ahearn captured the very early days of Hip Hop in near-documentary style, casting real (and now-pioneer) DJs, MCs, graffiti artists, breakdancers, and rappers. With appearances by Fab Five Freddy, Grandmaster Flash, Grand Wizard Theodore, Busy Bee, Cold Crush, and Rock Steady Crew, climaxing in a raucous impromptu East River Park concert (filmed without permits!).
