The Socalled Movie hits the big screen

News

After premiering at Hot Docs in May, and becoming available for “rental” on Youtube in the US, The Socalled Movie has come home to roost.

The Socalled Movie, Garry Beitel’s feature-length documentary about hip-hop/klezmer artist Socalled enjoyed its Montreal premiere at the Ukrainian Federation last Thursday (in the heart of Mile-End, Socalled’s own neighbourhood), and is now scheduled for a series of screenings across Canada.

You will find the complete list of Canadian theatrical release dates on the NFB’s Socalled Movie blog.

In the mean time, here are a few clips to whet your appetite: the official Socalled Movie trailer,

and a behind the scenes peak (excerpted from the movie) at how Ben Steiger Levine created the mask for the hugely popular “You Are Never Alone” video.

Enjoy!
