DEATH GRIP & short: KRS ONE: BROOKLYN TO THE BRONX
Finally, an American-made martial-arts film that gives us the action in all of its glory. No quick cuts, no shaky cameras, just pure skill and artistry. After he innocently pockets a coin from a museum, DEATH GRIP follows Mark Zemacus and his brother Kenny as they become entangled in the schemes of a satanic cult. Seeking the coin for evildoings, the cult's devotees deploy all of their brutal forces to obtain it. Including some of the most jaw-dropping action sequences since Jackie Chan's mid-80s apex, DEATH GRIP will be pure joy for martial-arts and action film buffs.
Preceded by short film: KRS ONE: Brooklyn to the Bronx.
KRS ONE: Brooklyn to the Bronx introduces the life and teachings of the legendary emcee, KRS ONE. On the road to becoming a Hip Hop pioneer, KRS ONE tells the story of his life as a young man living homeless on the streets of Brooklyn, sleeping in parks, the subway, all the while visualizing his path to becoming an emcee. Eventually landing in the Bronx, he begins to find his voice in rhyme battles inside New York's shelter system and on the street. Told in his own words both on and off the stage, KRS ONE: Brooklyn to the Bronx tells the first chapter of Hip Hop's master teacher and true philosopher.
By filmmakers Seth "Brimstone127" Schere, Jerry Kolber, Jacob Schere, and Joshua Moïse.
