In the late 80s and early 90s, the streets of downtown Manhattan were the site of a collision between two vibrant subcultures: skateboarding and hip hop. 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 convergence 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. Paris Is Burning meets Larry Clark’s KIDS, All the Streets Are Silent is a love letter to New York—examining race, society, fashion, and street culture

“This documentary is a portrait of downtown New York in the late 1980s and early ’90s that revels in nostalgia.” – Isabelia Herrera, The New York Times

One of the standout films from this year’s Tribeca Film Festival was ‘All the Streets Are Silent’, a documentary about the intersection between skateboarding and hip-hop in New York in the 1980s and Nineties.” – Jason Newman, Rolling Stone

All the Streets Are Silent is a welcome new documentary showing how two cultures are actually very connected and are still impacting our society to this day (and not a fad like many thought they would be).Julian Lytle, idobi.com

“If you want to know just how compelling this movement was for so many and how influential some of its more notable members (Busta Rhymes and Jay-Z for two) became, All the Streets will let you know.” – Robert Denerstein, Denerstein Unleashed
