Help Create “It Was Written,” new doc on Chicago Grafitti in the 1990’s

There was a time when Chicago was coverd in grafitti. Mayor Daley went to war, created a buffing team, the Grafitti Blasters and wiped out tons of work almost overnight. Much of this story has seeped through the cracks of history. While Chicago still has a vibrant street art scene, it’s orgins are hard to trace. In steps Houston-based filmmaker Joshua Conro to tell the story. He has spent years combing through files, videos, photographs and compiling interviews with writers building this compelling story.
