DVD somehow incorporating theme of graffiti?
 
Hi everyone!
 
Hope you are all having a great week!
 
At the moment I m doing the theme of graffiti with my teenage advanced classes.
They re really enjoying it and have offered to make some graffiti posters for my walls, since many of them are budding graffiti artists!!!
 
I m using Mena s excellent readings on the topic
 
 
Now what I m looking for is a film related to the topic of graffiti.  (Not a documentary)
I ve already done "Dangerous Minds" starring Michelle Pfeiffer and the song from the movie "Gangsta s Paradise" with them.
 
Any ideas????
 
Thanks!!!
Alex

Hi Alex,

Have you had a look on You Tube, or is that a silly question?

In that case, there was a movie called American Graffiti, (I think). If you download U-torrent (which is a search /download engine, I suppose) then youll be able to search for and download movies songs etc. in fact Ive just checked and there seems to be a few. Good luck.

PS I hope alexcure doesnt see this post and correct all my mistakes. Wink
