QBRK and NERD (Low Bros) bring some of their paintings to life in a skate video. Watch below!
When I posted Noah Rabinowitz’s photo series last week (see the photos here), I had no idea there was also a documentary film coming out!
Filmmaker Lotfy Nathan spent 3 years on the project, filming the wild antics of a notorious dirt bike gang known as the “12 O’Clock Boys”, in Baltimore. The gang’s name is a reference to wheeling the bike to the point you’re completely vertical.
The story is told from the point of view of Pug, a youngster from the Westside who wants to join them. According to the film’s website, it’s already garnered critical acclaim at SXSW and Hot Docs film festivals, and is set to be released in 2014. Can’t wait!
Watch the exhilarating trailer below!
As if running a huge annual arts festival wasn’t enough, my friends out in Hawaii have also launched the POW! WOW! “School of Music”.
Earlier this year they partnered with Flexfit to organize free music classes for youth ages 13-18, and are now looking to make it a year-round thing. Take a look at the video below, and if you’re a talented musician, maybe you’ll wanna get involved as a teacher at next year’s event!
My friend photographer Will Robson-Scott told me a little bit about his documentary “Chi Raq” when I was with him in Australia earlier this year. It feels like it’s been a long time since then, so I was excited yesterday when he told me it was finally online!
This is an intimate portrait of life in South and West Chicago. I had no idea it was one of the most dangerous cities in America.
Watch the entire “Chi Raq” film below!
