This intimate look into the club/party/rap lifestyles of the 1970’s in New York City is ruggedly documented in this film. Not only do you see the start of a lot of the trends and styles that are being re-created today, you see the sheer poverty and corruption that had a strangle hold on this city. With cameo’s from greats such as Fab Five Freddy, Bobbito Garcia, Rock Steady Crew, Keith Haring, Africa Bambaataa, and Basquiat, you will see what this was really like. The documentary will premiere at The New York International Latino Film Festival.
More dope shit…This time from director Marty Martin. Music video all shot with the iPhone 4.
P.S–I don’t know what my fascination is with all of this iPhone business seeing as how I am an avid blackberry man, myself. I guess it’s just the thought that all of this is being done on a CELL PHONE!!! Unprecedented…

This is gonna be STUPID funny hahahaha!!!!
In a city where great emphasis is put on material and monetary success, the most evident problems of poverty is often overlooked. Education is the inner city is a hot button issue that has yet to see any substantial improvement. Countless schools are being closed due to failing students. The Lottery looks at four families from The Bronx and Harlem who are patiently waiting to find out their young children’s educational fate. These kids’ futures depend on a lottery that, if won, would land them in a charter school. Charter schools are the saviors for a crippled NYC education system. I can’t wait to see the full film.
