The 18th Slamdance Film Festival, which runs from Jan. 20-26 in Park City, Utah, will showcase 18 feature length films - 10 narrative films and 8 documentaries - culled from 5,000 submission, from first-time directors in its feature competition programs.
Here's one of the 8 documentaries... titled I Want My Name Back, and directed by Roger Paradiso, the film centers on Master Gee & Wonder Mike of the ORIGINAL Sugarhill Gang who, 30+ years after the historic recording of their iconic mega-hit Rapper’s Delight, have come back to reclaim their identities and rightful place in Hip Hop history.
Describes by the subjects as the "classic label versus artist battle" story, the film is said to give the audience an honest inside look at the origins, trials and tribulations of the original Sugarhill Gang.
