New York, NY : Filmakers Library,

Gangsta chic, violence and nihilism, the hard edge of rap and reggae
increasingly dominates the image of black popular culture. This film
investigates the issues raised by the genre, such as ritualized
machismo, misogyny, attitudes towards homosexuality and religion, and
gun glorification. Filmed in dance halls, hip hop clubs, and using
interviews and music video clips, film takes us to London, Jamaica and
the U.S....

Greetings videolibbers,

I'm having trouble identifying a documentary that a faculty member is
looking for.=A0 According to her, it is a film about reggae, sexuality
and black politics in transnational space of New York and the
Caribbean. And apparently Paul Gilroy was involved in the film, but I
have no idea to what extent. Does this ring any kind of bell with
anyone? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Susanna.
