This was the first UK showing of Block Party (2002), a film by French artist Pierre Huyghe exploring the
early days of Hip Hop in the districts of New York. Part documentary, the film is a nostalgic remembrance of grass roots Hip Hop before it became a multi-billion dollar industry. It features the recorded recollections of DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa and Grandmaster Flash, with a soundtrack of captivating urban beats.
