As race riots rock America once more, we return to the story of Hip Hop’s true founding fathers - The Last Poets, Gil Scott Heron and The Watts Prophets – legendary militant black Poets and musicians that came together in 1968 to create an urgent new voice amidst the revolution.
Director Marko Nine has been filming with the Poets for the last two decades and brings a wealth of pre-shot footage and interviews to the project. Interview subjects to date include Chuck D (Public Enemy), KRS1, Doug E Fresh and Gil Scott Heron. The production is beginning the initial edit in late July 2020 with new interviews being shot through late Summer and Fall.
This Is Madness is scheduled for worldwide release in Q1 2021.
