Details

In the summer of 2004, renowned comedian Dave Chappelle threw a one-of-a-kind block party, inviting musicians such as Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, The Fugees and The Roots to perform. Inspired by the legendary film Wattstax (screening Thursday 24 August), filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) captured the lively event, along with private rehearsals and footage of Chappelle in his small Ohio hometown. As the film shows, a truly multicultural crowd relished this unique celebration of music, comedy, history and community.
