Storyline

Official selection AFI FEST 2004. ROCK FRESH is an electrifying documentary on the world of the graffiti artist. A raw snapshot of artists who literally have their back against the wall, the film follows five of the world's most legendary street artists as they make the leap from graffiti art to commercial art. From the street to the gallery. From walls to clothing. From private to worldwide. Our cameras unmask the mystifying process behind graffiti art like never before. Revealing step-by-step how the colors blend, how the angles sharpen, how the shadows emerge. Lifting the veil from a subculture so clandestine, it took 40 years to get this close. The artists take their skills to a variety of surfaces -concrete, canvas, metal, cloth, and brick. And to an array of locations - city rooftops, the desert, downtown lofts, the sewers, even the forest. ROCK FRESH also reveals artists painfully coming of age. From kids drawing in their sketchbooks, to grown men struggling to make a living ... Written by Calico Arts

breath-taking, one of my favorites films ever!
17 January 2005 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

ROCK FRESH left me gasping for air. Lots of documentaries claim to be truthful, raw, invigorating. This film takes you to an entirely new world, gritty and street level, the film pulses with an infectious energy that i can't explain. The director Danny Lee obviously knows what he's doing as the film taught me so much, and that there's another side to what the world considers just graffiti. The film is highly entertaining from start to finish. The graphics are incredible. The music is upbeat hip hop and electronic, experimental in nature, all relevant. This film is the most conclusive, well rounded film on graffiti/hip hop culture ever done. ROCK FRESH represents the future of film-making where young, fresh and hip replace these old, dry films being done by your regular crop of Hollywood sleepers. This is truly one of my favorite films of all time, perfect for a quiet night at home or throwing on during a party with friends. HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting your hands on a copy. This film will inspire the world.
