Last year, my friend Neil Drumming blogged here about the making of his movie "Big Words." That movie is now a fact and will be on display at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on this Friday.
The backdrop for the movie is election night 2008--though Obama is really beside the point. The plot is nominally about four dudes from a golden age hip-hop group stumbling into reunion. But they don't make any music.
I've seen the movie, and I love it. I love it mostly because it features black people as actual black people--which is to say not standing around discussing how blacketyblack they are. I'll be in the house on Friday. I hope you will too.
