Now Showing

Currently playing at BAM, through October 23rd, the 1981 film by Manfred Kirchheimer - Stations of the Elevated:

"The earliest filmed document of graffiti (shot in the late 70s), Manfred Kirchheimer’s richly chromatic 16mm city symphony sets images of northern Manhattan to a soundtrack that interweaves ambient city noises with the gutbucket gospel squall of jazz titan Charles Mingus."
