This short film film from the Seventies asks the burning question “Graffiti, Fun or Dumb?”


Watching this film, it seems heavy-handed on the subject of graffiti and while it appears to be a “discussion” with kids, using their own arguments, the conclusion seems obvious from the tone of the opening scene. I was and am what you might call a “square”. So if I saw this film as a kid, and I probably did, I would have come away feeling superior and more than a little self-righteous.

Boy I was a cool kid!
