I made this short documentary on Louie (KR.ONE) Gasparro while on my travels to New York. I was eager to visit 5Pointz as it was rumoured it could be torn down. This is where I met Louie and I was inspired to share his passion for graffiti. He shared with me what 5Pointz means to him personally, what it means to those in the local community and also to artists worldwide. It's heartbreaking to know that it's gone, it was also a safe and legal place to showcase art and creativity.
