Performers, Cast and Crew:
BEFORE I WAKE: A powerful documentary depicting the trials and tribulations that occurred during the final year of life for hip-hop pioneer Tupac Shakur, told by a man who was there alongside Tupac through it all--his personal bodyguard, Frank Alexander. BEFORE I WAKE includes interviews (including Death Row Records president "Suge" Knight and homicide detective Brent Becker of the Las Vegas Police Department), never-before-seen footage, and a behind-the-scenes look at the recording sessions for the hit "Until the End of Time."
THUG IMMORTAL: From his early appearances on record with Digital Underground to his popular and influential solo albums, Tupac Shakur was a rap phenomenon, and one of the pioneers of gangsta rap. Though often attacked by the media (and Dan Quayle) for his "thug" lifestyle, Tupac's life and art were filled with complexities that his detractors either did not see or just ignored in order to have a villain or a more sensational story. THUG IMMORTAL is an intimate look at Tupac's life told through previously unseen footage and interviews with his close friends, revealing an artist who grew up a thug, but one who soon tired of that lifestyle and its trappings, revealing a Tupac far different from the one most of America knows.
TUPAC VS.: An in depth portrait of controversial hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur featuring never-before-seen interviews, rare footage, and onscreen commentaries from biographer Michael Eric Dyson. Also highlighted are testimonials from the slain rapper's former manager, Leila Steinberg, and instructor Arvand Elihu.
