White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Autumn Screen presents
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 6TH
BLACK HISTORY MONTH SEASON
DAVE CHAPPELLE'S BLOCK PARTY (2005)
DIRECTOR: Michel Gondry
STARRING: Dave Chappelle, Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Baduh, The Roots, Common, Lauryn Hill & The Fugees, Dead Prez, John Legend and more.
From the director of Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, The Science Of Sleep and Be Kind Rewind (plus music videos for Daft Punk, Bjork, Radiohead and more), comes this unique film documenting a once in a life time event of a free block party in Brooklyn New York hosted by legendary U.S. comedian Dave Chappelle. Chappelle loads up a bus of people from his hometown of Ohio and takes them to a suprise event he has organised that features a line-up of some of the greatest black music artists of their generation including Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Baduh, The Roots, Common, John Legend and many more including an almost unthinkable impromptu re-uniting of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras better known as The Fugees. A funny, sonically thrilling and (typical of Gondry) inventively and vibrantly shot freewheeling celebration of great music and the spirit of community. One of the great music docs of all time it comes highly recommended for big screen Friday night viewing.
