All the Streets are Silent
Jeremy Elkin has gone a long way since growing up in Canada making skate videos using any equipment he could find, culminating with local full-lengths Elephant Direct and Lo Def before fully embracing New York City as his longtime second home and capturing the heads and talents there with Poisonous Products and The Brodies.
Now via his new documentary film, All the Streets are Silent, narrated by East Coast brand Zoo York co-founder Eli Morgan Gesner, he fully details the collision and coherence there between two marginal practices at the time: hip-hop and skateboarding, forming throughout the 1990’s a movement strong of modern philosophies and aesthetics now indissociable from history of New York City altogether.
All the Streets Are Silent is a love letter to New York — examining race, society, fashion, and street culture.
