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:

Thanks to the film's producer for letting us post the audio of the trailer from the show online. This film is currently showing across from UCI in a limited run. It may end this week unless viewers show up.

Morgan has also been interviewed in the OC Weekly and in the New University. See also: Art Crimes: The Writing on the Wall for evidence of graffiti's global reach.
