Red Bull Music Academy & ego Trip present Filmmatic An Evening of Rare Hip Hop Documentaries at Sunshine Cinema
Red Bull have 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.
