Neckface and Isaiah Secret film

Neckface - Born Under a Bad Sign from Isaiah Seret on Vimeo.
This is some trailer for some film called Born Under a Bad Sign created by sometimes anonymous graffiti artist Neckface and controversial filmmaker Isaiah Secret.

It looks like a B grade cross between Kill Bill and Exit Through The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon but that somehow doesn't bother me.

This trailer proves that street artists who get into filmmaking - the postmodern medium of 'great storytelling'/monetising buzz brands - are able re-frame their already recognised symbols for a different audience.

This was filmed at MOCA in Los Angeles for the Art in the Streets exhibition.
