Description

Director in person

From the director of the cult classic Wild Style, this is the story of Jamel Shabazz, whose mission to create a portrait of the hip-hop generation became a worldwide phenomenon with his book Back in the Days. We follow Shabazzs journey from his Brooklyn youth to his riveting photographic interactions on the streets and subways of New York. The film is overflowing with vintage shots of kids rocking Puma Suedes, Kangols, and pin-striped Jordaches and features interviews with hip-hop legends Fab 5 Freddy, KRS One, and more. An Artists Public Domain/Cinema Conservancy release. (2012, 81 min, digital)

This is presented as part of our Back in the Day film series, which honors important and influential (but lesser known) icons of hip hop and urban subculture with two premiere screenings.
