An Embrace Of Film and Music

Hip Hop Revolution

Saturday, June 16-------One of the most popular sidebar sections at SILVERDOCS is the Best Music Documentary competition. This marriage between cinema and synchopation uses visual technique to give a deeper understanding of how music is evolving and the artists whose passion and commitment to expanding their art can either lead to personal tragedy or personal triumph. This year, six excellent films are competing, covering a wide range of musical styles and visual temperaments. Judging the films and determining the award winner is a stellar jury that includes actress/filmmaker Rosanna Arquette, filmmaker Joe Berlinger (METALLICA) and writer/designer Brian Liu. The winner will be announced later today at the Sterling Awards Competition awards ceremony at the AFI Silver Theater.
