Re: Generation Music Project

Hulu will distribute the "Re: Generation Music Project" exclusively on its ad-supported site for free. The film became available Monday and is currently playing in SXSW's Special Events category. The film will be Hulu's Documentary of the Month throughout March and April, and subsequently available on Hulu Plus until March 2014. Directed by Amir Bar-Lev ("The Tillman Story"), the film features original tracks created by the likes of The Crystal Method, DJ Premier, Pretty Lights, Mark Ronson and Skrillex. "Re: Generation" was made in association with The GRAMMYs, with funding from Hyundai. You can watch the film below or here and download the tracks and remixes here for free. More info below:

As an official selection of the SXSW 2012 Film Festival, "RE:GENERATION MUSIC PROJECT" is one of eight films screened in the Special Events category, which offers unusual, unexpected and unique film one-off events. Directed by award-winning documentarian, Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, My Kid Could Paint That), "RE:GENERATION MUSIC PROJECT" enjoyed a unique nationwide, one-night only event in over 180 theaters nationwide on February 16, 2012 with encore screenings on February 23rd.
 
Commissioned by Hyundai as the official vehicle partner of the GRAMMY®s, the film follows five electronic DJs/producers as they turn the tables on the history of music. In the film, the now three-time GRAMMY®-winning artist Skrillex heads into a Los Angeles studio with members of the iconic rock band, The Doors, to collaborate on a new song, “Breakin’ A Sweat.” Meanwhile, The Crystal Method touched down in Detroit to work with Martha Reeves of The Vandellas and two-time GRAMMY® winners, The Funk Brothers on the R&B number, “I’m Not Leaving.” Three-time GRAMMY® winner Mark Ronson created a southern brew of New Orleans jazz in “A La Modeliste” that boasts a veritable all-star cast of four-time GRAMMY® winner Erykah Badu, Trombone Shorty, Mos Def, Zigaboo Modeliste and members of The Dap Kings. DJ Premier tapped Nas and Boston's very own Berklee Symphony Orchestra for his “Regeneration,” and the documentary culminates in Nashville on the dusty intergalactic twang of Pretty Lights' "Wayfaring Stranger" featuring vocals from two-time GRAMMY® winner LeAnn Rimes and three-time GRAMMY® winner Dr. Ralph Stanley.
