Under the Influence of ego trip: 'White Lines and the Fever', 'SBX!', + Q&A
White Lines and the Fever: The Death of DJ Junebug
Dir. Travis Gutierrez Senger, 2010, 26 min.
This film (which won the Best Documentary Short award at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival) is the story of Junebug's double life as a DJ and drug dealer. Recalling the Bronx in the early 1980s, this documentary explores the old-school days of hip-hop and the dangerous underworld at the legendary Disco Fever. Never-before-seen footage and interviews with Kurtis Blow, DJ Hollywood, and Sal Abbatiello tell the tragic story of one of the greatest DJs ever.
SBX! Holding Down the Tradition
Dir. Jun Ohki, 2005, 31 min.
A cult classic set in the heart of hip-hop and featuring unearthed battle footage from the late eighties. Part music video and part documentary, SBX! stars a powerful line-up of hip-hop figures and underground celebrities, among them Show & AG, Lord Finesse, Percee P, Party Arty, D-Flow, Edan and Dave Tompkins. This film is a uniquely joyous celebration of the D.I.T.C. crew's contributions to BX hip-hop history that plays like Jim Jarmusch run amok in Patterson Projects.
Plus a very special bonus film live from the planet of Brooklyn
Scheduled to appear: Filmmakers Travis Senger and Jun Ohki, Sal Abbatiello (Disco Fever; Fever Records), legendary hip-hop pioneer DJ Hollywood and D.I.T.C. members to be announced
