Black Gold: BELLY – ARTS & CULTURE
The Royal’s newest screening series, BLACK GOLD, is back at it again, folks! Celebrating the best of black cinema and its heroes from then ‘til now, Black Gold is excited to present their July screening – the 1998 hip-hop classic cult film, BELLY! Hype William’s directorial debut and only feature film to date, Belly is the visual and creative apex of his work as one of the best (if not THE best) music video directors in hip-hop history. Belly follows, with unparalleled visual flair, the lives of two young New York criminals, Tommy “Bundy” Bunds (played by DMX), and Sincere “Sin” (Nas).
While critically maligned at the time, Belly is without a doubt a movie you need to SEE, not just watch. Much more than “just a long music video,” with Belly Williams created a world which translated street nihilism into a vibrant, dark, and innovative visual aesthetic and took up themes regarding the prison industrial complex, the movement of drugs and violence into inner cities, black on black crime, black conceptions of beauty, religion and spirituality, and black diaspora.
Come through and stimulate your senses at The Royal Cinema (608 College St). They’ve got prizes! Come for the Hype Williams pre-show at 7:30PM – Belly Starts at 8PM. Tickets available online for $10: https://goo.gl/APu2UQ
