Stations of the elevated

Stations of the elevated es quizás la pieza documental más extraña que jamás se haya hecho sobre el graffiti de New York.

Filmado por  Manfred Kirchheimer en 1981, esta especie de verso-rallada documental nos muestra diferentes cortes de paneles y wholecars de leyendas como Ale1, Slave, Caz, Noc167, Mitch, Butch y Blade, entre otros.

Rodado en pleno boom de los wholecars – y plena hecatombe de la MTA- en el aparecen trozos del mítico whole train Doomsday  de los Fabulous 5. Todo ello mezclado con tomas de los pasos elevados del metro, los escritores comentando los paneles en el writer bench,  publicidad, jazz-gospel y sobretodo el sonido propio de los railes, frenos y la atmósfera propia de las  cocheras.

Una creación visual rara de cojones -que recuerda algo los experimentos de inicio de siglo de  Ruttman Vertov- pero gracias al que hoy tenemos trozos en movimiento de piezas miticas.

Stations of the elevated is perhaps the strangest part documentary ever made ​​about graffiti in New York.
Filmed by Manfred Kirchheimer in 1981, this kind of verse-grated documentary shows different panels and cuts of legends wholecars Ale1, Slave, Caz, Noc167, Mitch, Butch and Blade, among others.
Filmed in full boom wholecars – and full carnage of the MTA-appear in the legendary pieces of the whole train Doomsday Fabulous 5. All this mixed with footage subway overpasses, writers commenting on the writer’s bench panels, advertising, and especially jazz-gospel sound of the rails himself, brakes and the atmosphere of the garages.
A rare visual creation of something reminiscent -home experiments Ruttman and Vertov century-but thanks to these  we have today mythic pieces moving parts.
