RUBBLE KINGS Official Trailer (2015) New York Gangs Documentary

Dig into American street culture. NYC street gangs were at the beginning of the hip hop movement (a true American artform, consisting of MC’s, DJ’s, graffiti writers and B-boys/girls), and their history and impact on American culture has been documented in this film. See the full film here.

From the filmmakers:

“From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings, the most comprehensive documentation of life during this era of gang rule to date, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted the world over.”
