A Short Film about the Silk City Bomb Squad: A Freestyle Bike Gang from New Jersey

Cruise through the streets of Paterson, New Jersey, and follow the Silk City Bomb Squad on a hazy journey. Easily stereotyped by passersby and law enforcement, these young men actually strive to encourage their younger peers to avoid the perils of street life, selling drugs and other nefarious criminal activities.

Steven Mastorelli’s short, shot on Kodak 16mm film creating a near typical ethereal quality that sits in perfect harmony with it’s jagged, urban setting is perfectly shot, with slick sound design. This film shows there’s a positive message in everyone if you just look close enough.
