Really honored and excited for this. Hope to see some of yall out there!
We will have another NYC screening of SPIT at the 10 year Anniversary of the Manhattan Flm Festival next month.

If you haven't seen SPIT yet this may be your last chance to see it in NYC on the big screen so def come out. Screening date coming in a few weeks

A Film about the legacy of the Hip Hop scene in New York City, an homage to the unsung artists birthed within it, all through the eyes of Jeremiah “Monk-One” Sinclair, a Hip Hop artist who has reached the end of his rope. Spit is a new chapter of not only Black Cinema, but indie and New York cinema as well. All these aspects will be highlighted during this Happy Hour event where you will get a chance to hear about the film from its creators, see the trailer, watch an exclusive clip, see some special guest performers, dance and much more! Hosted by the folks of Monolodge, it promises to be a special evening you want to be a part of!
