Since starting this “docu-manhunt” last year, we’ve been fortunate to locate a few creators, meet some truly amazing and creative people that have become friends and collaborators, and to begin crafting a documentary that will tell the stories of the people, places, and times behind the iconic boomboxes.
After a couple months of filming and editing, the Boomboxラジカセ Creators team is proud to present a preview of the upcoming documentary film.
Boombox, Ghetto Blaster, Jambox, Boomblaster, Brixton Briefcase, Thunderbox, Radio-Cassette, ラジカセ…
By any name, the boombox was a catalyst for a worldwide urban revolution in music sharing, art, style, and design.
Why are the creators of the iconic boomboxes of the 1970s and 1980s still largely unknown?
Now is the time to find them and tell their stories.
