Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme

December 8, 2022
Bruce Montgomery Theatre
PLA Presents

Winner of numerous film festival awards, the critically acclaimed film, Freestyle, chronicles the underground hip-hop culture of improvisational rap in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Packed with rare, archival footage of some of the best MCs in history, the film features the story of MC Supernatural and his quest to become a champion. Legendary battles and artists including Mos Def, Wu-Tang Clan and Notorious BIG provide insight into this world of improvisation and creativity. “A rousing education in an art form that is too often misunderstood,” (The New York Times) Freestyle connects the dots from yesterday’s poets to today's hip-hop innovators.

Directed by Kevin Fitzgerald, 2000, U.S., documentary, English.
