“Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer” and “Stations of the Elevated,” two films with a strong connection to the city and the music that it helps create, are slated for DVD releases this fall through Oscilloscope.
Charlie Ahearn, director of the hip-hop film “Wild Style,” brings new attention to Jamel Shabazz and his art with “Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer,” painting a vivid picture of the man whose photography helped to define a generation of African American street culture. “Jamel” will be released digitally October 6 and as a limited edition DVD on October 27.
“Stations of the Elevated,” a jazzy city symphony shot on 16mm and directed by Manfred Kirchheimer, features iconic images of urban landscapes and the vibrant graffiti that drapes its surface. “Stations” will be released digitally October 20 and will be made available as a limited edition DVD on November 17.
