I finally finished watching this hour and a half long documentary called UNLIKE U about the very active graffiti scene in Berlin. A lot of characters are interviewed in this documentary and if you watch the whole thing you’ll see that a lot of different crews and writers do it for many different reasons (other than just simply getting up). There’s hostility towards their craft however and you get a first-hand look at some of that in this film.
If you don’t have the time to now, maybe you should save this video for later viewing. It’s good!
