On September 13th 1996 at the tender age of 25, Tupac Shakur, an MC, actor and global superstar, was fatally shot. His music living on in the hearts and minds of many, Tupac Resurrection was made by Lauren Lazin, a unique documentary narrated by Tupac himself. The film is an intimate insight into his life, thoughts and aspirations.
Whether a Tupac fan or otherwise, this critically acclaimed film delves into the fascinating contradiction of a young man who deemed himself both revolutionary and thug. From making of music that was influenced by his mother’s teachings, Black Panther Afeni Shakur, with a conscious Black Power aesthetic; to then working with Suge Knight, Dr.Dre and Snoop Dog at Death Row and the gangster rap lyrics fueled by the infamous rivalry with his friend-turned-enemy Biggie Smalls; Tupac Shakur became an enigma.
Caramel Film Club will host a post-screening panel with MC & hip-hop educator Breis, award winning lyricist Eklipse and journalist and founder of The British Blacklist Akua Gyamfi to discuss themes from the film. Shortly followed by an evening of music and VJing with One Nation’s DJ Croc, Mi-Soul’s Shaq D and a PA from emerging rapper ALEX-iS.
One Nation’s music policy includes hip-hop, soul, rare grooves, Old Skool to New Cool. While One Nation plays for the crowd until midnight, Brixton village residents United 80 will provide a pop-up shop with hip-hop and culturally inspired merchandise with artwork from the uber talented Artful Fro.
Come and join them for a great film, inspired conversation and good vibes. All are welcome.
