RBMA Presents: Filmmatic: An Evening of Rare Hip Hop Documentaries
The revolution called hip hop has been well televised. But even 40 years after it all started out in the Bronx, there are still some well-hidden treasures amongst the myriads of documentaries chronicling what is now the world’s most influential youth culture. This is why we’ve teamed up with infamous hip hop archeologists-slash-anarchists ego trip to screen three rather rare films from the ’80s and early ’90s: “Beat This” by Dick Fontaine (1984), “Big Fun In The Big Town” by Dutch director Bram van Splunteren (1986), and Diane Martel’s street dance documentary “Reckin’ Shop: Live from Brooklyn” (1992). The screenings will be followed by a conversation with all three directors and some of the films’ protagonists, including Afrika Bambaataa, Schoolly D, and “freestyle hip hop” dance legend Buddha Stretch. Chairman Mao of ego trip will host.
