If you love B-Boy culture then you will love the Style Wars Project, which is currently up for funding on Kickstarter.com.
Released in 1983, before any of you were twinkles in your parent’s eyes, Style Wars was a documentary over 60 minutes long.
It featured some interesting characters doing some interesting dances to interesting new music (hip-hop), anyone over 25 couldn’t or didn’t understand.
While the film made it to theatres, and video cassettes around the world at 69 minutes, a handful of scenes were left on the cutting room floor. How much? Well, the film had 30 hours of original footage of the Rock Steady Crew doing their thing.
Style Wars, as a document, is a testament to early NYC and hip-Hop Culture. With this KickStarter project, filmmakers Henry Chalfant and Tony Silver hope to preserve the outtakes and present them in a boxed set DVD.
