Under the Influence of Ego Trip: "Electric Boogie" & "Beat This!: A Hip Hop History"
The second program in the "Under the Influence of Ego Trip" series features the inspirational Electric Boogie (1983), produced and directed by Swedish / US filmmaker Tana Ross. The film intimately follows four African-American and Latino youths coming up in the early '80s South Bronx, and their unflagging devotion to the art b-boy-ing and breaking. Also on tap is distinguished UK documentarian Dick Fontaine's Beat This!: A Hip Hop History (1984). This highly stylized BBC production features dynamic appearances by a veritable who's who of original school luminaries: Kool Herc (in what are perhaps his most revealing and personal public interviews), Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force, the Cold Crush Brothers, Lisa Lee, Sha-Rock, graffiti writer Brim of Tats Cru, and Officer Kevin Hickey of the NYPD's infamous Vandal Squad. Rhymed narration is provided by NYC broadcasting legend Gary Byrd.

Post-screening discussion and Q&A with hip-hop legends the Soulsonic Force, Easy AD of the Cold Crush Brothers, as well as Electric Boogie director Tana Ross.
