THE FILMS

Closeness (Danilo Parra | Bronx, NY | 22 min.)
They say faith is the belief in things unseen. In this beautiful and moving documentary about Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre, a nearly forgotten 74-year-old jazz musician, we see years of struggle - of an artist unable to do anything but make music, of his own push and pull with drugs, against getting older. The film centers on the recording of his album Closeness, which abstractly tells the story of his love for his wife, nearly 30 years his junior. danilop.com

WHITE LINES AND THE FEVER: THE DEATH OF DJ JUNEBUG (Travis Senger | Bronx, NY | 26 min.)
Recalling the Bronx in the early 1980's, this documentary explores the old-school days of hip-hop and the dangerous underworld at the legendary Disco Fever. Never-before-seen footage and interviews with Kurtis Blow, DJ Hollywood and Sal Abbatiello tell the tragic story of one of the greatest DJ's ever. lincolnleopard.com
