Night Out at the Museum
August 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
On Wednesday, Aug. 30, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., the quarterly film screening “Night Out at the Museum”, hosted by FashFilmFete™ (an annual film festival celebrating fashion storytelling) will feature their latest film: Fresh Dressed at the Phoenix Art Museum.
Fresh Dressed is a fascinating, fun-to-watch chronicle of hip-hop, urban fashion and the hustle that brought oversized pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from Orchard Street to high fashion’s catwalks and Middle America shopping malls. Reaching deep into Southern plantation culture, the Black church and Little Richard, director Sacha Jenkins’ music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials.
There are in-depth interviews with rappers, designers and other industry insiders, such as Pharrell Williams, Damon Dash, Karl Kani, Kanye West, Nasir Jones, and André Leon Talley. The result is a passionate telling of how the reach for freedom of expression and a better life by a culture that refused to be squashed, would, through sheer originality and swagger, take over the mainstream.
Tickets are $5/person.
