Sundance
25 January 2006 | by (Ogden, Utah) – See all my reviews

I saw this at Sundance on 1/24. It was really well done and has really interesting interviews with industry people. Some people interviewed were Chuck D, Jadakiss, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Russel Simmons, etc. A few people did a really crappy job of evading questions asked and the issue in general. The director was there and took on a lot of tough questions with a lot of insight. This film did a great job of asking tough questions and providing some measure of understanding to the audience. Very informative and entertaining!!! Hopefully this film will be able to open up a line of communication about the issue. Thank You Byron Hurt!!!
