DAVE CHAPPELLE'S BLOCK PARTY
At the height of his powers with CHAPPELLE'S SHOW, Dave Chappelle joined forces with Erykah Badu, The Roots, Jill Scott, Yasiin Bey, Kanye West, Lauryn Hill and more for a celebration in the streets of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Interspersed with comedy sketches and musical performances, Chappelle personally invited the neighbors to get down to the sounds of soul and hip-hop and raise a joyous ruckus. Collaborating with director Michel Gondry, Chappelle took cues from the landmark '70s concert film WATTSTAX to create a hybrid concert/comedy doc with a heavy dose of jokes and quirk. DIR Michel Gondry; SCR/PROD Dave Chappelle; PROD Mustafa Abuelhija, Julie Fong, Bob Yari. U.S., 2005, color, 103 min. RATED R
