Clinton St. Theater presents ALL THE STREETS ARE SILENT

Director Jeremy Elkins goes back 30 years, making it seem like yesterday with fuzzy B&W clips, photos and music that resurrects two art forms.

It doesn't matter if you're a "hip hop head," a skater, or a stockbroker. You'll be engaged from beginning to end.

Dante James, Film Threat

All the Streets Are Silent is at its best when showing the people - the punks and the rebels - doing their thing, and their thing was creating beautifully gritty and straight-up real landscapes and memories through danger.

Bill Arceneaux, The Spool

ALL THE STREETS ARE SILENT: The Convergence of Hip Hop and Skateboarding (1987-1997)
Jeremy Elkin
United States
89 minutes

In the late 80s and early 90s, the streets of downtown Manhattan were the site of a collision between two vibrant subcultures: skateboarding and hip hop. Narrated by Zoo York co-founder Eli Gesner with an original score by legendary hip-hop producer Large Professor (Nas, A Tribe Called Quest), All the Streets Are Silent brings to life the magic of the time period and the convergence that created a style and visual language that would have an outsized and enduring cultural effect. From the DJ booths and dance floors of the Mars nightclub to the founding of brands like Supreme, this convergence would lay the foundation for modern street style. Paris Is Burning meets Larry Clark's KIDS, All the Streets Are Silent is a love letter to New York--examining race, society, fashion, and street culture.
