Synopsis

American actor Michael Rapaport turned documentary director to produce this 'love letter' to his hip-hop favourites — 90s legends A Tribe Called Quest. Taking an all-access look at the New York crew's turbulent career and rich legacy, the passionate feature explores how their inventive fusing of different musical styles and upbeat, message-filled lyrics made them into one of the most groundbreaking and influential groups in their genre's history. Extensive archival material and 2008 reunion tour footage capture the electric appeal of the band's sound for both fans and newcomers, while insightful interviews with the four Tribe members and other scene royalty, including the Beastie Boys, De La Soul and Mos Def, gives the film its depth.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
