Urban Industry Screens "OBEY GIANT" at The Birley Centre, Eastbourne.
It was with great pleasure that we screened a UK exclusive showing of the excellent 'Obey Giant' Film by James Moll. We teamed up with the Birley Centre in Eastbourne and their cinema facilities which provided the perfect setting and screen size to make an impact.
The film 'Obey Giant' is an insightful look into the birth of Obey from the creator Shepard Fairey, he speaks candidly about his influences, inspirations and brushes with the law during his early days of graffiti stickering. The film works its way through Obey becoming a clothing brand, one that we at Urban Industry have stocked since 2005, to Shepard developing the Obama Hope poster the year he won the US presidential election.
It was great to see so many friends, family and customers in attendance to enjoy the film, the free beer and the popcorn greatfully supplied by Metcalf's. At the end of the screening we had a free raffle with prizes including an original ink screen from Obey, A piece of signed Obey Artwork plus various prizes from Urban Industry.
Many thanks go out to the Birley Centre and Simon at Lead Distribution for helping us run this great, local event.
