Graffiti Artists and Quality of Life

On our March 13, 2006 show, we did a live interview with Ben Morgan, the director of a new independent film, Quality of Life, about graffiti artists on the streets of San Francisco. The realistic dramatization of these budding artists' lives has won invites to festivals in Berlin and Seattle. We chat with Morgan about the politics of art and state repression with increasingly punitive law enforcement on "quality of life" issues. See film wesbite at:
