the legendary: a film about the roots

The Roots are the unsung heroes of the music industry. Their alternative/instrumental approach to hip-hop has allowed the group to blur our perceptions of "genre". Their occupancy as the house band on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" has permitted them to collaborate with countless artists (from Lissie to Bruce).

Artist and videographer, Cam Be (Camovement), is one of the many who recognize the legendary acclaim that The Roots warrant, and he has created a 10-minute doc about the group's significance to the music community. Although short, and predominantly concert footage, the few interviews, conducted by Jeff Baraka (co-producer), are enriching.
