This documentary plunges into the secret underground world and history of freight train and graffiti culture, uncovering stories of myth-like artists, remarkable romances, competitive graffiti crews, and battles with the institution.
Before street art became mainstream, the anonymous outlaws of “freight writing” put graffiti on the map. One of the most extreme and risky iterations of the art form, freight train graffiti culture has a rich history, filled with myth-like artists, remarkable romances and competitive graffiti crews. Delving into the underground subculture reveals the deep connection between graffiti and the American landscape, as well as the artists’ obsession with putting life and limb on the line to make their voices heard.
The film takes you back to the origin of the art, in one of its most extreme and risky forms. The film is directed by Roger Gastman and produced by Mass Appeal for SHOWTIME.
