FILM: Groundbreaking Documentary ‘Rubble Kings’ Finally Hits Theaters June 19
THE WAIT IS OVER
Filmmaker and director Shan Nicholson’s long-awaited project of love, Rubble Kings, gets its official summer release this month after years of hard work and dedication on all fronts (Kickstarter and Twitter offer a glimpse). The feature-length documentary uncovers the real-life drama surrounding 1970s New York City gang culture, its remarkably inspiring message and undeniable influence on the birth of hip hop. Take my word, don’t miss this film when it comes to town (in theaters and on demand June 19). Earning full audience support the night I attended its 2011 screening at HBO’s NY International Latino Film Festival, Rubble Kings goes back in time while being timely as ever. Painstakingly researched, this is an important story that needs to be seen and heard … finally. Catch the new trailer on iTunes.
