Dave Chappelle's Block Party
About the Film:
Actor, writer and comic Dave Chappelle loads up a bus with residents of his Ohio hometown and takes them to Brooklyn, N.Y. Once there, the travelers enjoy a concert featuring Kanye West, the Fugees, Big Daddy Kane and others. Rehearsal footage and Chappelle's brand of comedy enliven the proceedings.
Inspired in part by the 1973 documentary Wattstax (which screens Aug. 18, also as part of The Little's Summer of Music and Art series).
