The Legend of COOL “DISCO” DAN tells the story of Washington, D.C., in the 1980s through the eyes of D.C. graffiti legend COOL “DISCO” DAN. Narrated by D.C. native Henry Rollins, this feature documentary offers the most comprehensive portrait to date of this critical decade, including the development of Go-Go, racial tensions, crews, sensationalist media, and crack—as well as D.C.’s vibrant graffiti culture. Graffiti historian Roger Gastman (curator of Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s) and filmmaker Joseph Pattisall introduce their documentary and answer questions afterwards.

Tickets to this film are now sold out. An on-site waitlist will begin at the door of the auditorium at 7:30 p.m., half an hour before the film starts.
