In 1982, a small independent movie written, produced, and directed by Charlie Ahearn was released, first in Germany, Japan, and Cannes, then finally in Times Square. Some twenty-five years after its release, Wild Style is truly a classic, having inspired countless artists, musicians, and writers with its unforgettable scenes starring the era’s most memorable personalities. We’re celebrating in conjunction with the powerHouse retrospective book Wild Style The Sampler to be released. With a live set by DJ Disco WIZ!
This year’s festival is being produced by the Brooklyn Bodega, the Room Service Group and Seven Heads Entertainment.
