8 Mile (2002)
Directed by Curtis Hanson
“More acutely than any movie before, it gives cinematic expression to the hot-tempered, defiantly nihilistic ethos that ignites gangster rap.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Rabbit (Eminem), a young white rapper trying to make it in Detroit, is forced to overcome a broken home, dead-end relationships, hanger-on friends, and brutal enemies on his rise to acceptance and local fame. In his only feature dramatic role, Eminem provides a personal and semi-autobiographical look at the post-rock n’ roll Detroit music scene and how he found his own voice while surrounded by industrial decay.
A Q&A with production sound mixer Danny Michael and film editor Jay Rabinowitz will follow the screening.
Hip-Hop Education Center founder Martha Diaz will introduce the screening.
