Director returns after 30 years

The New York African Film Festival rolls into town today, bringing with it Director Charlie Ahearn, who is returning to the borough for the first time in 30 years.

Ahearn’s 1983 film “Wild Style” discussed the Bronx’s then-underground hip-hip scene, DJs and graffiti taggers. His next film, which will air at the festival, held through Thursday at the Walter Reade Theater, will bring the director back to the Bronx’s streets — specifically 183rd st. and Jerome Ave.

The new short, “Bongo Barbershop,” a film about a man from Tanzania that is searching for hip-hop. (NYDailyNews)
