I Want My Name Back

The Screening Room 127 E. Congress


2012, USA, 95 Min
Directed by Roger Paradiso

Highlighting the rise, fall and rise again of original members of The Sugarhill Gang, Wonder Mike (Michael Wright) and Master Gee (Guy O'Brien). The Sugarhill Gang recorded the first ever platinum rap album and rap song and are credited with introducing hip hop to the world more than thirty years ago. We follow The Sugarhill Gang through its chance beginnings in New Jersey, it's rise to fame, and the subsequent struggles of the real Wonder Mike and Master Gee as they try to create new music and battle with their label and an indifferent legal system which stripped them of their identities and rightful legacies.

"An interesting, frustrating and important look at the true birth of hip hop and who actually created the rhymes that brought rap to the mainstream"  Film School Rejects

"There's a sense of rage to I Want My Name Back take(s) on the air of protest, of a middle finger to those who have done The Sugarhill Gang harm."  Film Threat

Animation Short
Directed by Sara Khalili

In the chaotic atmosphere of a city, people run , homeless and fearful , eyes closed and scattered in different corners. In the midst of all this, a man and a woman are running; panic stricken, they come face to face. Upon their meeting, the city atmosphere disappears and sounds die down.
