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 Morgan 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 with an outsized cultural effect.
Kingswood and Nikolaj Stenbæk organized a premiere screening event at Cinemateket in Copenhagen in collaboration with Morten Tang, Editor at Cinemateket. We got Eli Morgan Gesner to do a special video intro to the screening. The film was followed by an afterparty with DJ Tue Track playing a special 80-90s hiphop set accompanied by drinks from TO ØL.
