CFS Presents DRUMLINE in 35mm
DRUMLINE
Directed by Charles Stone III * 2002
Nick Cannon stars as an incoming freshman and talented snare drum player at the fictional Atlanta A&T University, a place where the halftime shows far outshine the football (which you wont see any of in this film). In a beautiful trifecta of egos, hes also an incorrigible show-off who clashes with his controlling percussion leader (Leonard Roberts) and his band director (Orlando Jones), a man so dead set against modern music he counters their rival bands au courant hip-hop compositions with Flight of the Bumblebee. "Drumline"s depiction of black college life is a rare and much needed addition to Hollywood cinema, yet its most tremendous achievement may lie in its production, shooting with a marching band built from scratch out of mostly high school musicians, and a drumline composed of real HBCU drummers and the actors who trained incessantly alongside them. The competition scenes showcase some of the greatest real-life marching bands of the South, and they are beautifully shot, heart-pounding affairs, with the final showdown being well worth the price of admission. Though some bands declined to be part of the final scenes, as band consultant Don Roberts remembers they responded politely, Thank you for the invitation to participate, however, we dont lose. Not in real life and not in fiction.  (RL)
