Synopsis: The streets of New York may be temporarily silent, but in downtown Manhattan in the early ’90s, they were the site of a dynamic clash between two vibrant subcultures: skateboarding and hip hop. Jeremy Elkin’s documentary, All the Streets Are Silent, narrated by Eli Morgan Gesner, brings to life the magic of this time period and creates an urban style and visual language that has an outsized and lasting cultural influence. If Paris Is Burning and Kids Had a Baby, you’d have this documentary love letter to New York — which examines race, society, fashion, and street culture — and is full of archival footage that includes mythological scenes from the cityscape. Contains characters and figures.
