Where the Spin Begins
This cinematic journey through the birth of hip-hop features live DJ spinning pre- and post-screenings. Tonight, it all begins with Wild Style (1983, Charlie Ahearn), "essential text," including the epic Williamsburg Bridge park jam, Chief Rocker Busy Bee at the Dixie Club, the Cold Crush Brothers and the Fantastic 5 battling on the b-ball court, and Grandmaster Flash in his kitchen. Plus, Ahearn's short Bongo Barbershop (2005). Q&A with Ahearn. Plus, DJ Cut Chemist (pictured) will spin before and after the screening.
