Community Film Picks: All the Streets Are Silent [screening + Q&A with Eli Gesner]
Fri, Aug 18, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Bushel is pleased to present a screening of All the Streets are Silent, a 2021 documentary film directed by Jeremy Elkin that looks at the momentous convergence of hip hop and skateboarding in the late 1980s and early 90s in downtown Manhattan. See trailer here. Doors at 6:45 pm; screening begins at 7 pm. This program is free to attend.

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 collision between two vibrant subcultures–skateboarding and hip hop–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. All the Streets Are Silent is a love letter to New York–examining race, society, fashion, and street culture.

The film’s narrator Eli Gesner and Dave Ortiz who makes a brief appearance in the film will both be present for a Q&A session after the screening.

Bushel thanks Delhi residents Dave Ortiz and Ulli Barta for picking this film!
