After setting heads nodding and knees bouncing in unison at Sundance, Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest got a Tribeca Film Festival crowd moving to the beat and, occasionally, to tears, for its homecoming screening. Shown in the city that gave rise to the documentary’s titular characters, the New York premiere had a distinctly family vibe.
Hit the jump for audio and highlights from one of the festival’s liveliest q&a sessions all week. Director Michael Rapaport and ATCQ members Malik Taylor (a.k.a. Phife Dawg) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (seeing the film on a big screen for the 1st time) took the stage after the packed screening at the festival’s biggest venue: the Borough of Manhattan Community College Tribeca Performing Arts Center.
