A Tribe Called Quest movie premieres
There’s something special about making a film, especially when it comes down to the time the crew spends together. Known for his ‘keen eye’ (and keen sense of humor), editor Lenny Mesina is on the top of the list of people that I love spending time with.
So when Lenny filled me in on the premiere of Michael Rapaport’s highly anticipated ATCQ documentary, I wanted to share a sneak peek at the people involved with making the film during their trip to the Sundance Film Festival.
And as you can see from a sampler of his photos below- it was a perfect storm of creatives, cinema, music and Hip Hop culture. You’ve got fat snowflakes, Phife Dawg, animator James Blagden, Peanut Butter Wolf, an enthusiastic film audience, panels with guests like Cee-Lo, a performance by The Roots and the list goes on. (See more at Lenny’s Flicker.)
We wish Lenny, producer Ed Parks, director Michael Rapaport and the numerous cool peeps who made this awesome documentary a huge congrats. We are stoked to see this film hit theaters sometime in the near future!
