Great summer series about the Afro-American culture with introductions that offer the Dutch perspective.
Selected by: Basje Boer, Film ambassador

There aren’t many hip hop albums that have been as well received as Illmatic by Nas. The documentary Time is Illmatic investigates the story behind the creation process of this radiant album. The assembly of archived pictures, photos and interviews gives you a glimpse of the image and life of one of the biggest MC-s and storytelling artists of all time.

This film is part of the Reflecting Cities series, which is dedicated to presenting the evolution of contemporary Afro-American culture in American cities. Each month a film is shown around this topic in the Tolhuistuin’s garden preceded by an introduction. All films of the series are included in the We Are Public programme selection.
