SYNOPSIS: 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. Featuring ROSARIO DAWSON, HAROLD HUNTER, JUSTIN PIERCE, KEITH HUFNAGEL, DARRYL MCDANIELS (RUN-D.M.C.), JEFFERSON PANG, BOBBITO GARCIA, STRETCH ARMSTRONG, KOOL KEITH, LEO FITZPATRICK, MIKE HERNANDEZ, DJ CLARK KENT, KID CAPRI, MIKE CARROLL, A$AP FERG, MOBY, FAB 5 FREDDY, PETER BICI, YUKI WATANABE, CLAYTON PATTERSON, BEATRICE DOMOND, TYSHAWN JONES, AND MORE.Directed, Produced, and Edited By JEREMY ELKINWritten by JEREMY ELKIN AND DANA BROWNNarrated by ELI GESNERProduced by DANA BROWNCo-Produced by KYBER JONESAssociate Producers ALLEN GRANT, JOSH STEWART, SAMUEL GURSKY, TED NEWSOMEExecutive Produced by DAVID KOHDirector of Photography JEREMY ELKINOriginal Score by LARGE PROFESSORArchival Material by ELI GESNER, YUKI WATANABE, R.B.
