THE BLANK CANVAS by Rafael Flores: underground Seattle Hip-Hop culture (World Premiere!)
7:00 p.m.    THE BLANK CANVAS (USA, 2013; 93 min.) Directed by Rafael Flores. Filmmaker Talkback (tentative) after the film.  World premiere.

Filmmaker & Hip-Hop musician, Rafael Flores, conducted 6 years of research to create the original documentary about underground Seattle Hip-Hop culture. Since 2004 he has interviewed over 100 rappers, producers, DJ's, graffiti artists, disk jockeys, break-dancers, fashion designers and promoters to tell the real story of underground Hip-Hop in Seattle.

The film attempts to document the unique identity of Hip-Hop culture in Seattle as it takes us on a journey that investigates the origins of the culture in the late 1970's, the legacy of Sir-Mix-a-Lot, the notorious 1985 Teen Dance Ordinance, Clear-Channel's dominance over commercial Hip-Hop radio, the increasing popularity of white rappers in Seattle and the independent artists struggle for representation in a seemingly liberal city.

Starring: Alpha P, Black Stax, Blue Scholars, Dyme Def, Macklemore, Massive Monkeys, Vitamin D, BYC Crew, Laura 'Piece' Kelley, The Grynch, NEeMA, Anthony Shears, Hella Dope, DJ Hyphen, Jerm, DJ B-Girl, Fatal Lucciauno, Specs One, Moorpheus of East Union Hustlers & many more.

Writer, Director & Editor: Rafael Flores
Executive Producer:  Alex Sinclair
Director of Photography:  Aled Ordu
Produced by:  Suntonio Bandanaz and Jared "Rufio" Alfonzo
