They were known as the Writers: a group of youths ages fourteen to eighteen who, inspired by the New York graffiti phenomenon, took to the streets of Paris in 1983 and repeatedly tagged the city walls with their distinctive names. By creating their own style, they inspired an entire generation of artists. In this documentary, filmmaker Marc-Aurèle Vecchione examines the ways in which the techniques, styles, and support systems of the artists evolved from the time they first began making their mark on the capitol city back in 1983, and continued developing their talents over the course of the next twenty years.
