Blank city( Visual )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1970s to the middle 1980s, Manhattan was in ruins. But true art has never come from comfort, and it was precisely those dire circumstances that inspired artists like Jim Jarmusch, Lizzy Borden, and Amos Poe to produce some of their best works. Taking their cues from punk rock and new wave music, these young maverick filmmakers confronted viewers with a stark reality that stood in powerful contrast to the escapist product being churned out by Hollywood. Documents the history of "No wave cinema" and "cinema of transgression" movements

Wild style( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slender story line of "Wild Style" features red-hot graffiti artist Zoro. He's got girl and family trouble, but is discovered by a reporter, and thus embarks on a journey from outsider to gallery artist. This low-budget art movie is almost documentary in that it includes a who's who of early hip-hop, which was a creative movement played out in Bronx basements, kitchens, dingy bars, and on stoops, one of many things to do on Saturday night. The film is a panoply of the war-zone streets that birthed hip-hop, freestyle MCs, break dancing, and beautifully, meticulously tagged subway trains from the days when hip-hop was more than just music--it was a small, self-selecting, micro youth culture as specific to New York as the Statue of Liberty. The film is a fascinating time capsule for anyone interested in the cultural roots of hip-hop, practically anthropological, not so much old skool as pre-school
