Mark Webber (THE UNTITLED JIM JARMUSCH PROJECT, STORYTELLING) leads a talented young ensemble cast as Blest, a 19 year-old graffiti writer fresh out of high school who spends his days stealing spray paint and his nights "bombing" the streets with his graffiti crew.
Blest is at the top of the NYPD Vandal Squad's hit list. At the same time he is also attracting attention from the local art gallery scene.
Things get explosive when 15 year-old Lune, the youngest member of Blest's crew, is arrested and brutalized by the NYPD. The crew retaliates by waging an all out "graffiti war" against the city: a war that ends up costing more than one life in the end.
Palm Pictures releases 23 year-old Adam Bhala Lough's critically acclaimed feature film debut BOMB THE SYSTEM. Shot entirely on the streets of New York City, BOMB THE SYSTEM is the first feature in over 20 years to delve into the underground world of graffiti art.
The film has been featured at 20 film festivals on three continents. The film has an original score by hip-hop producer El-P and features true graffiti legends including 'Lee' George Quinones and Bonz Malone.
