«[My movie](http://www.banksyfilm.com/) was just a trailer for Style Wars 2.» Banksy

Style Wars is a legendary documentary, filmed in 1983, which helped the graffiti movement from New York to spread around the world in the eighties. 30 years later, Veli and Amos, two Style Wars fans from Europe, trip through today’s graffiti and street art scene. The journey takes them from Europe to New York and eventually ends in the Middle East. The filming of the movie has almost been completed, but we are lacking funds for post-production, sound track and distribution. With your support, we hope to accomplish this and to then present the movie at international film festivals this fall.

Style Wars 2 shows exceptional encounters with graffiti artists and their views. Along the way, Veli and Amos also happen to attend boxing fights in New York and visit hairdressers in the West Bank – even though the movie’s main focus is on graffiti, it also raises topics like art, politics and lifestyle. Jan Gassmann and Adrian Aeschbacher are editing Syle Wars 2. Lars Holdhus is responsible for the sound track and Gregg Skerman will presumably take on the role as sound editor.

Letter of [Henry Chalfant](http://henrychalfant.com/):

Im happy to say that the film Style Wars, that I co-produced with Tony Silver, has had a significant impact upon the world’s culture. Many young people have been influenced by the film and inspired to become artists or filmmakers themselves. Among those who have shown me their ideas for a film, Amos Angeles and Veli Silver really stand out. I have seen their work-in-prograss, with the working title «Style Wars II». It is a completely original film that makes intelligent and extremely funny references to our nearly 30-year-old film, but in contemporary situations. They use clever dialogue and audio quotes from Style Wars to establish the context. In ironic, and often hilarious scenes they engage the varios elements of the film’s narrative, such as the conflict with authorities, the cross-out wars and the emergence of graffiti in the art world, in surprising ways.

People often ask me when I plan to make the sequel, Style Wars II, something which I have no intention of doing. I have listened to many hackneyed ideas on the subject, which usually involve documenting the growing spread of graffiti art and other elements of Hip Hop culture around the world. The film that Amos Angeles and Veli Silver are engaged in making is a refreshing departure from those efforts. It is exceptional and I am more than glad to support them in their efforts and eager to see the finished product.

Sincerely, Henry Chalfant (Producer of Style Wars)
