German graffiti film WHOLETRAIN

Click on image to enlarge.

Four Munich graffiti-writer - one crew; their life: drawing styles, "bombing" trains; when suddenly another crew shows up in the city, a battle starts that will change the live of the four protagonists forever...

I've been waiting & waiting for more information to come to hand on this new German film. It will be released in Germany in October. It recently won an award for Best Narrative Feature at the UrbanWorld Film Festival. The train scenes were shot in Poland where the Polish authorities apparently said, 'yeah sure, you can use our trains. layups, sheds to make your film. That would never happen here in a million years.

"Writer-director Florian Gaag was himself a member of Munich’s graffiti scene for many years. He later took up studies at Tisch School of the Arts in New York, also contributing to the Hip Hop magazine, “Juice”. Gaag persuaded well-known international graffiti artists Won, Cemnoz, Pure, Ciel and Neon to create both the graffiti and graffiti pieces for his film. Filmed in Munich and Warsaw, most of the young cast and crew working either in front of the camera or behind it were doing so for the first time."
