Dave Chappelle had a dream, and with his infectious easy charm it was never unlikely he'd make it a reality. Michel Gondry's documentary follows the comedian on his travels through the heartlands of America to throw the ultimate Brooklyn block party. A life affirming and good natured journey punctuated by performances from some of Hip Hop and R&B's royalty; amongst them Kane West, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Cody Chestnutt and the Fugees. Good times. find out more...

Italians, Koreans and African Americans are struggling to keep a lid on the tensions within their Brooklyn community, but Sal's pizza parlour provides the perfect social hub for the neighbourhood. However, as a sweltering hot day drags slowly on, racial tensions evolve from petty bickering to full scale violence and ... WHY WON'T THAT GUY TURN OFF HIS FREAKIN' RADIO!!!! Excuse me. A controversial but mature film from Spike Lee. Incendiary, compelling and highly recommended.

Style Wars is the cult documentary of hip hop and by extension graffiti art that was sweeping America by the 1980's. More a revelation on the graffiti than it is the music this film is a fascinating insight into these early pioneers and the rabid opposition from those in authority (it was also something of a revelation that most of the lads look like they've just stepped off the set of Napoleon Dynamite, but hell…every look has it's moment of ‘cool'). find out more...

Produced by Spike Lee, CSA is a wickedly clever 'mockumentary' that attempts to show what life in America may have been like if the South had won the civil war. The film is peppered with fake adverts, together with some that are rooted in reality and manages to be satirically humorous as well as genuinely thought provoking. find out more...
