RIME’s colorful edition of 5 prints in a Deluxe Highland Park Police Arrest Sheet Binder.

“The sheets were laying on the floor of this Police station for 10+ years until I came along and rescued them. The city should have done a better job at securing or destroying these records. Shit was found in an abandoned police station that has since been demolished. This art cures relationship woes. Guaranteed to make you single.” – RIME

The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan

DC History right here. Narrated by Henry Rollins, and premiering February 23rd at the AFI Silver Theater located in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Discover the “other” Washington of the 1980s through the story of legendary graffiti artist Cool “Disco” Dan, a mysterious, ubiquitous presence during the height of go-go music, record crime rates and city-wide dysfunction. Few people knew every block of the city like Dan, and as intrigue about his identity grew, his illegal scrawl became a unifying force for a city on the verge of chaos. Narrated by DC native Henry Rollins and featuring interviews with “Mayor for Life” Marion Barry, civil rights activist Rev. Walter Fauntroy, punk rock historian and activist Mark Andersen and musicians Chuck Brown and Ian MacKaye, this documentary from filmmakers Joseph Pattisall and Roger Gastman (producer, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP) tells a fascinating chapter of DC history.

DIR Joseph Pattisall; PROD Roger Gastman. US, 2012, color and b&w, 90 min. NOT RATED
