The 2015 Sundance Film Festival will get a taste of Hip Hop thanks to the Nas-produced, Sacha Jenkins-directed documentary Fresh Dressed. The film covers the history of Hip Hop fashion and culture.
Fashion industry insiders like Kanye West, Andre Leon Tally, Riccardo Tischi, Dapper Dan, Karl Kani, Dame Dash, and Thurston Howell III make appearances in the movie. According to Jenkins, the doc presents a narrative that “begins with slavery and ends with what is being rocked today–and what the social implications attached to it all are.”
Fresh Dressed was produced by Mass Appeal in conjunction with CNN. The film will be released in 2015 and air on CNN.
Other featured documentaries scheduled to debut at Sundance include The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution (Director: Stanley Nelson), In Football We Trust (Directors: Tony Vainuku & Erika Cohn), and What Happened, Miss Simone? (Director: Liz Garbus).
