Swooner Movie Nights: Dave Chapelle's Block Party
Last month, at the third Swooner movie night, in association with Portobello Picturehouse, we screened Dave Chapelle's Block Party. Back in 2006 Chapelle organised a massive, free, hip-hop party in Brooklyn and got everyone ever to perform at it - Kanye, Mos Def, The Roots, Erykah, Dead Prez, Common and a load of others too. Directed by Michel Gondry and put together really well, it not only has amazing musical performances but also hilarious segments with Chapelle telling jokes and just generally being amazing. If you haven't seen it I'd highly recommend it, and lucky for you it is being screened in the Lighthouse Cinema as part of their music documentary series on Saturday 5th October. You can get tickets here.
It is also all on Youtube you can check it out below if you don't like going outside or other humans.
