With the Support Of

From its inception in the 70’s Hip-Hop has been the undercurrent influencing every generation, color, and creed on a global scale. Serving as a vessel for the voiceless, Hip-Hop music became the soundtrack to the minority experience in America; depicting the harrowing reality of poverty, oppression, displacement, and violence that many Black and Latino communities endured from day to day. What spawned from this became movement music; empowering, and even elevating those who ingested the culture. Thanks to one of the various mediums, film, we’ve been able to capture the essence and evolution of Hip-Hop and its key players. The Hip-Hop House film series will use this vehicle as a tool to push conversations and ideologies around the music in an effort to preserve it legacy and continue its expansion.

O Cinema & Hip-Hop House is proud to present TUPAC: RESURRECTION! The first authorized documentary about the life and times of rapper Tupac Shakur, this Academy Award-nominated film captures the music and art he created, and the revolutionary ideas he voiced before his death in 1996.

“All I’m trying to do is survive and make good out of the dirty, nasty, unbelievable lifestyle that they gave me.”
Tupac Shakur

Through personal home movies, photographs and recited poetry, the story of Tupac Shakur, one of our most beloved, gifted and revolutionary rappers/writers, comes alive. TUPAC: RESURRECTION tells the tale of race, class, and celebrity through the eyes of the artist, while providing a contemporary context of what’s going on in the world today.

Immediately following the movie, there will be a post-show Q&A with special guests & the Celestial Cipher lead by our MC of Honor, James Klynn! The Celestial Cypher is composed of homegrown talented Mc’s displaying their skills to set off the evening!

“Lazin’s remarkable achievement is to catch Tupac in the act of discovering himself. It’s something to see.”

“A poet warrior of the first order emerges in this riveting chronicle of the brief life and times of rap superstar Tupac Shakur.”

“The interview clips that comprise the sole voice-over are carefully chosen to illuminate both Pac’s scorching charisma and debilitating paranoia.”

“Let’s assume you are a person who never intends to see a doc about rap music, but might have it in you to see one. This is the one.”
