price: Headfirst Tickets


"Hip hop is a basic attitude against oppression, the attitude that my voice isn't being heard, and I'm going make my voice heard no matter what, that goes across all races of people, all cultures" - KRS-One (USA)

PRSC and Industry#1 Films present the Bristol premiere screening of A Way of Life - a documentary celebrating global Hip Hop culture.

With a DJ dropping beats, b-boys and b-girls cutting shapes, and paint spattered graff writers drawing on the walls, this night will be a joyous Bristol flavoured celebration of all things Hip Hop.

Places limited so book early.

About the movie:

'A Way Of Life' gives prominence to a culture that has gone beyond music, providing an accessible platform of expression for millions of people across the globe.

Shot over a span of two years in 15 locations worldwide 'A Way Of Life' explores Hip-Hop culture from music to graffiti, beat boxing and break-dancing.

The film charts Hip-Hop's progression through it’s near 40 year existence from an underground subculture of New York “Bronx”,

Highlights include Brazilian artist Emicida being arrested for performing his social, political song HipHop; the Ghanaian Hip Life scene; and Hip Hop being used to teach English and life skills in Cambodia.

Interviews include up and coming as well as established artists such as KRS One (USA), Skinnyman (UK), Jeru The Damaja (USA), Marcelo D2 (Brazil), Lord Finesse (USA) & Big Narstie (UK) illustrating their talent, background & the socio-cultural environments that influence their music.

"A Way Of Life is a life-affirming look at the origins & universality of hip-hop culture. The editing style & interview settings match the boot-strap nature of hip-hop itself. It is an education for the new arrivals to the scene & a heart-warming re-acquaintance for the long-time aficionados. It captures the love." Whizz - London
