Infamy is an intense journey into the dangerous lives and obsessed minds of six of America’s most prolific graffiti artists. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Doug Pray (Hype and Scratch) who teamed up with writer, publisher, and graffiti guru Roger Gastman, the movie takes you deep into the world of street legends Saber, Toomer, Jase, Claw, Earsnot, and Enem.
With brutal honesty, humour and charisma, these artists reveal why they are so willing to risk everything to spray paint their cities with “tags,” “throw-ups,” and full-colour murals. You’ll also meet Joe “THE GRAFFITI GUERRILLA” Connolly, a notorious “buffer” who paints out graffiti on his neighbourhood’s walls with a vengeance matched only by those who vandalized them.
From the streets of the South Bronx to the solitude of a San Francisco tunnel, from high atop a Hollywood billboard to North Philadelphia for a lesson in “Philly-style tags,” from the Mexican border to a Cleveland train yard, Infamy doesn’t analyze or glorify graffiti… it takes you there and brings it to life.
