Celebrating 50 Years of Hip-Hop

To commemorate Hip-Hop’s 50th year, the festival’s special selection features documentaries that go beyond the beats and flows. Titles like Style Wars and Nas: Time is Illmatic offer historical perspective, while films such as Lil Peep: Everybody’s Everything present a modern lens into the genre’s evolution. From the role of independent radio in Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives to the critical study of trap music, the line-up promises a rich, multi-faceted understanding of Hip-Hop culture.
