Beat This! A Hip Hop-History

Dick Fontaine - United Kingdom – 1984 – 59’

Fontaine catches hip-hop in its inception, with a narrative work that’s as original and electric as an alien film. The apocalyptic Bronx, Kool Herc, “Planet Rock”, B-Boys, rapping chicks…  All the films that came after took a slice from this one.

Beware of Mr. Baker

Jay Bulger - United States – 2012 – 90’

Two minutes into the film the director lashes out. We present you the  shittiest, craziest, most unfriendly, fantastic drummer in rock: the redheaded devil, the gem that is Ginger Baker. Insults to the illustrious, fights, smack, jazz, Cream, epiphanies and offended offspring. Careful ‘cos this one bites.
