PROGRAMME FOR THE DAY:
FILMS:

Fresh Dressed
Fresh dresed

Chronicling the history of hip-hop and urban style and fashion, Fresh Dressed is as vibrant and loud as the trends it showcases, thanks in no small part to insightful interviews with a who’s who of hip-hip style pioneers and trendsetters.

Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Nas, Kid ‘N’ Play and many more sit down to talk about their love appreciation for brands including Adidas, Puma, Polo and Louis Vuitton, and the importance of image and representation in hip-hop culture. Fuelling the aspirational relationship between Hip-Hop and fashion, companies such as Tommy Hilfiger would drive through neighbourhoods handing out free merchandise to people in attempts to give their product all-important street cred.

Nasty Baby

What starts out as a commentary on modern love and relationships transforms into a tale of terror in Sebastián Silva’s Nasty Baby. Following 2013’s double offering of Magic Magic and Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus, both starring Michael Cera (Superbad, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), this story of a New York gay couple (Silva and Tunde Adebimpe) trying to conceive a baby with their best friend (Kristen Wiig) marks Silva’s first American film production.

Not everybody in Nasty Baby is progressive though – enter ‘The Bishop’, played by House of Cards’ Reg E. Cathey. Persistently antagonising his neighbours with his leaf-blower, The Bishop takes issue with everyone else’s way of life, which ultimately proves deadly for our trio of would-be parents. As if a low sperm count wasn’t enough to deal with!
