The documentary plunges into the secret underground world and history of freight train and graffiti culture, uncovering stories of myth-like artists, remarkable romances, competitive graffiti crews, and battles with the institution. As street art’s widespread integration bursts into the mainstream vibrancy via posters, books and high-end galleries, the film takes viewers back to the origin of the art, in one of its most extreme and risky forms. The film explores the train graffiti subculture from turn-of-the-century markings to modern-day masterpieces, forever linking the art form with America’s landscape. ROLLING LIKE THUNDER reveals the anonymous outlaws of “freight writing” who put life and limb on the line for an obsession to share their voice through their artwork. The film is directed by Roger Gastman and produced by Mass Appeal for SHOWTIME.
