Big Fun in the Big Town is an interesting film. When the documentary’s production started in 1986, Run-DMC was just starting to make a name for themselves LL Cool J was the new kid on the block, still living with grandma. When filming started, parts of New York City were still finding out about a fresh new artistic movement. Now, more than 25 years later, this same art form has been called dead at various junctures, and the film is finally getting an official release after decades on the shelf. Raw footage of Russell Simmons, Grandmaster Flash, Doug E. Fresh, and more shows a movement being sculpted, and Dutch documentary director superstar and hip-hop aficionado Bram Van Splunteren shot and compiled it. Find out more about the project at FiveDayWeekend, which will release in DVD/time-capsule form on May 22, but can be pre-ordered on Amazon now.
