1. The Whitewashing Of 5 Pointz (2D Version)


    from Ben Schwartz Added 851 7 2

    On November 19, 2013, 5 Pointz -- the iconic aerosol art center in Long Island City, Queens -- was whitewashed overnight with no advance warning. The building has since been demolished. In this short documentary, 5 Pointz curator Meres One and director Ben Schwartz take a look back at that fateful day and consider the legacy of street art's most famous public canvas. Originally shot and screened in 3D, but shown here in 2D. Contact me if you'd like to see this in 3D or screen it in 3D at your film festival.

    • We Don't Need More Rats Here


      from P.J. Monsanto Added 2,924 16 0

      During the early hours of November 19th, 2013, 5Pointz, a New York City landmark whose walls prominently displayed countless pieces of sanctioned street art, was hastily painted over on the orders of the building’s long-time owner as the first step in a process to develop the space into luxury condominiums. Now on the anniversary of the November 19th “whitewash,” a short subject documentary entitled We Don’t Need More Rats Here is available on-line for public viewing. "Rats" documents the 5Pointz artists’ efforts to save the building before it was painted over and gives viewers a last look through the eyes of independent filmmaker, P.J. Monsanto, at what 5Pointz represented and how it fit into the City’s street art history and culture. For more information, please contact wedontneedmoreratshere@gmail.com

        Shot entirely on iphone in 2011, this video is about the 5 Pointz Graffitti Building, in Queens, and features Meres one of the most well know writers. It was done while I was in New York City to cover the 10 years of 9/11 for TSF, Portuguese News Radio while I was awarded the Committee of Concerned Fellowship under the umbrella of Programa José Rodrigues Miguéis by Fundação Luso-Americana.

              from [Natives] Added 31 0 0

              This is a video short I put together to help generate support for saving the NYC aerosol and graffiti art museum 5 Pointz. The clips are from a larger documentary I am working on called "East Coast Art Talk" which will be out in December 2013. Unfortunately, the majority of the work at the museum was whited-out by the building owner Jerry Wolkoff about 7 days after I released this video. A lost treasure indeed... www.5ptz.com
