On Friday, October 26, Amsterdam's LAB111 are screening the documentary brought to us by Aleksi Pohjavirta.
The New Dictators - Archaeology of Hellsinki graffiti is the documentary film about the evolution and the people behind the graffiti culture of Helsinki. The film starts from the innocent beginnings back in the mid-eighties and travels through the vandal enthusiasm of the nineties to the zero tolerance politics of the 2000's leading into county jail.
The documentary includes tons of rare archival material side-by-side with interviews with the pioneers and the masters like the Diamonds Crew and Trama.
The feature film will be openend with an exclusive short film 'Harder they come' about Helsinki Inside bombing scene (8 mm, 4 mins, 1997).
