R.I.P. Tony Silver

The director of Style Wars has died at the age of 72. Originally broadcast on PBS in 1983, Silver's documentary (co-produced by Henry Chalfant) brought NYC graffiti and hip-hop culture into the homes of unsuspecting citizens across the country and the world.

More on Silver in today's New York Times.
Get the expanded two-DVD set here (definitely one to own).
