Cult hip hop and graffiti fairy tale, Wild Style comes back to the big screen to celebrate the Crimes of Passion street art exhibition. Legendary New York graffiti artist Lee Quinones plays the part of Zoro, New York's hottest and most elusive graffiti artist. Zoro competes on the streets to practice his art in a society that wont accept him whilst struggling to find himself in a romantic relationship with artist, Rose. The film is colourful loud and still great fun with amazing subway shots, breakdancing, freestyle MCing and rare footage of one of the godfathers of hip-hop, Grandmaster Flash, pulling off an awesome scratch-mix set.
