At February’s Hit The Ode I was handed (notice the reckless abandonment of the third-person!) a mysterious slip of paper on which were scribbled the words “Medieval Hip Hop Film”.
What? Yeah, I know. A bizarre concept, but one that seems a whole lot more coherent than it sounds – check out the trailer for ‘The Quickener’, a new spoken-word film by Indiegogo set during the Black Death, at http://www.indiegogo.com/The-Quickener
This is an exciting project, well worth keeping an eye on. As Maxwell Golden, one of the actors, says on the video: “that spoken-word art form, to me, feels both fresh and also age old.”
