Trailer–“Downtown Calling”

This intimate look into the club/party/rap lifestyles of the 1970’s in New York City is ruggedly documented in this film.  Not only do you see the start of a lot of the trends and styles that are being re-created today, you see the sheer poverty and corruption that had a strangle hold on this city.  With cameo’s from greats such as Fab Five Freddy, Bobbito Garcia,  Rock Steady Crew, Keith Haring, Africa Bambaataa, and Basquiat, you will see what this was really like.  The documentary will premiere at The New York International Latino Film Festival.
