Dark Progressivism, directed by Rodrigo Ribera d’Ebre film covers LA’s history of murals, tagging and street art born during the urban upheaval of the 80s and 90s. Narrated through first-hand accounts by artists such as: Defer, Prime, Big Sleeps, Gajin Fujita, Germs, Saber, Daniel Gonzalez, UGLAR Works, Patrick Martinez, and others, this eye-opening documentary tells the story of a local nativist tradition in artwork through interviews with muralists, tattoo artists, graffiti writers, musicians, taggers, gang members, art historians, documentarians, and political figures.

The film screens October 15 as part of an evening of programming presented with the San Pedro Waterfront Arts District in the historical elegance of the Warner Grand Theatre.

You can see a preview of the Noir Series featured Dark Progressivism 5:30pm on October 6 at San Pedro First Thursday Artwalk at the SPIFF Lounge and Gallery, 446. W. Sixth Street.
