"Dirty: One Word Can Change the World" & Discussion headed by ODB's mother, Ms. Cherry Jones
"Dirty: One Word Can Change the World"
(Dir. Stephon Turner, 2009, 86 min.)
Filmmaker Stephon Turner (aka "Raison Allah") offers a personal corrective to the media's portrayal of the life and death of his brother, Russell Jones, known to the world as Ol' Dirty Bastard. Turner skillfully analyzes the elements of Jones' MC persona through his access to mutual family, friends and partners in the Wu Tang Clan and his own historical research. He reveals that Dirty's distinctive style is the bastard offspring of a cultural and family legacy - part Indian chief, r&b frontman and the drunken monk of kung-fu films.

AFTER THE MOVIE:
Discussion headed by ODB's mother, Ms. Cherry Jones, filmmaker Raison Allah, King Downing (expert on police profiling of Hip Hop artists), and a slew of Wu Tang members and affiliates.

Reception sponsored by Sugar Hill Ale!
