World Premier of Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe

Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe's world premier was part of the LA Film Festival on June 21. Of course, it had to be in Los Angeles where both David Choe and director Harry Kim grew up.

David Choe does what we really want to do. Write on walls, sell out art shows and basically live life with no fear. Oh, and have some awesome talent.

The movie starts out with David Choe in Congo Africa looking for a dinosaur. We get a glimpse of David's various adventures surrounding his artwork. Through personal stories told through people in his life, we start to understand the psyche that is required to create the type of art that he does.

The documentary includes commentary from Shepard Fairey, Dave Kinsey, Saber and David's parents. It was especially moving to see his father talk about his own dreams of being a painter and how his parents discouraged him from pursuing his dreams. He supported his son's artistic pursuit.

Harry Kim did an amazing job creating the movie. It was fast pace, never a boring moment. The music further made the movie come alive. I remember thinking that I hope the movie does not end. I want to see more!
