  • Primera Fila

    Franco De Vita

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 1 hr 57 min

    To be a successful artist in the music world means more than recording numerous albums, filling up stadiums and conquering radio. What it really means is to make art, to touch the hearts of millions of people, and to create music that transcends time. Precisely what Franco de Vita has achieved in his almost three-decade career. His hallmark is that of the poet who weaves songs with the filaments of his imagination and his talent for words. That’s how to best describe this singer and songwriter, born in Venezuela of Italian parents, and who has made Spain his home for many years. His position is secured both with the public that has known him from his early days as a rocker and who has seen him flourish in many other facets, as well as with the singers for whom he has written hits, from Ricky Martin to Chayanne. The truth is, simply, that Franco does not rest on his laurels. And that’s why this year, the singer/songwriter who has captivated generations with songs such as No Basta, Cálido y frío, Fuera de este mundo, Louis, and Ay Dios, is back with a musical production recorded entirely live at the Comtel studios in North Miami on January 20. Franco de Vita en Primera Fila is the pinnacle of a career. “I have been dreaming about this for many years and, well, finally, we’ve made the album,” says an enthusiastic Franco. “The idea behind this project comes after having presented three shows at the Centro de Bellas Artes of Puerto Rico (the island is one of his most important markets) a while back. But then, in the end, what we thought of doing did not happen. So, more records came along, more songs, more hits, thank God, and now, with Sony, it finally takes place. And here we are.” Under the direction of Diego Álvarez, of Plataforma TV; the production of Vicente Solís; and the collaboration of 15 musicians, Franco unleashed his innate talent in front of some 250 people. “Since I have never shown something that I am not, in this project I cannot do anything else but to continue showing who I am,” says Franco. “For me, what really matters is the musical part. Here, we try to present those same hits but in a different way. Songs have their own personalities, thus, they themselves tell you ‘hey, I am not feeling well in this genre. Get me out of here.’ We have a few people, a few musicians. It is another way of transmitting, of projecting, a song.” “It is imperative that we include the songs that were hits. And it has been mighty difficult because, which song do you take out? How many do we put in?”, “We had to limit ourselves to 20, including new songs.” Those new songs featured are Tan sólo tú, the first single, a duet with Mexican rock star Alejandra Guzmán, and Mira más allá. Although the duet begins as a tranquil ballad, it develops into a musical explosion perfect for the voice of the queen of rock. Meanwhile, the other “is a very particular song, like a return to those first days performing with groups, gathering in a room four or five musicians to do the track. It’s a bit reminiscent of the 70s and 80s.” Other duets included are Te veo venir soledad, with Puerto Rican salsa master Gilberto Santa Rosa; No se olvida, performed with Argentine singer Soledad; Si quieres decir adiós, with a promising new talent: Costa Rican American Debi Nova; and what is perhaps the biggest surprise in the album, his new version of Si la ves, for which he reunited his original colleagues, the Sin Bandera duo (Leonel García and Noel Schajris), dissolved in 2007. “I have brought them back together,” says the artist with a laugh. “Really, there have been a lot of people involved and, to tell the truth, I am super excited. It is a very strong point in the album, a song that I have performed with many new talents.” Franco de Vita en Primera Fila highlights once more his quality as a composer and an artist in this exclusive live production.

  • Scene Not Heard: Woman in Philadelphia Hip Hop

    Various Artists

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 45 min

    Philadelphia is often referred to as the mecca for American soul music, however its contributions to hip-hop have been overlooked despite its mass proliferation of artists, many of whom have made landmark contributions as emcees, graffiti artists, dancers, and most notable as deejays. Native talents such as Will Smith, The Roots, and Eve have become international pop stars and made great strides domestically and internationally, but somehow "the Illadelph" still doesn't get the kind of props of a city like Los Angeles or even Atlanta.

    Despite all of this, the City of Brotherly Love has continued to churn out some of the most innovative hip-hop artists of the current generation. Perhaps one of the most unique aspects to the scene is the abundance of powerful female voices that it has produced as artists, promoters and writers. In this debut featurette, director and producer Maori Karmael Holmes seeks to tell the story of these women-the legends, the famed, and the ingénues-as they struggle to succeed in a male-dominated industry in a city that has been left behind in the national consciousness.

    SCENE NOT HEARD features interviews with some of the originators of hip-hop such as Lady B, Schoolly D, Monie Love and Rennie Harris, with vanguards chiming in including Bahamadia and Ursula Rucker, and presents current talents such as the Jazzyfatnastees, Ms. Jade, and Lady Alma, and emerging talents such as Versus, Keen of Subliminal Orphans and Michele Byrd-McPhee of Montäzh, as well as scholars, critics and local promoters.

  • Favela Rising

    Anderson Sá

    Year: 2005

    Runtime: 1 hr 22 min

    This documentary follows one man's efforts to better his own life and the community he calls home. Anderson Sá grew up in the ghettos of Rio de Janeiro (known locally as "favelas"), where drug dealing, gangs, corrupt police officials, and violence were a common part of daily life. However, Sá came to realize that the life he was living was a dead end, and gave up selling drugs and gang life to become a community activist. Sa also had musical talent, as did a handful of like-minded friends, and together they began fusing the energy and immediacy of hip-hop with the hypnotic grooves of reggae, creating a new sound called afro-reggae in the process. Favela Rising follows Sá and his comrades as they share the story of his violent past, his vision of a better future for the favelas of Brazil, and the crucial message behind their music.

  • Straight Out of Puerto Rico: Reggaeton's Rough Road to Glory

    Various Artists

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 1 hr 10 min

    The Spanish-language musical form known as reggaeton took shape in Puerto Rico during the late 1990s. In lieu of emerging as its own unique and inimitable genre, it actually comprised a mélange of several pre-established genres - specifically, rap, hip hop, reggae and Caribbean music. Per its title, the documentary Straight Outta Puerto Rico: Reggaeton's Rough Road to Glory discusses the evolution of reggaeton from an indigenous Puerto Rican style (born and bred in the poverty-strewn barrios of San Juan) to a transcontinental phenomenon. It also details reggaeton's ultimate status as a government-discouraged form of grassroots personal expression with incendiary political content that prompted widespread censorship, political crackdowns, and suppression. The documentary contains interviews and performances featuring reggaeton superstars such as The Luny Tunes, DJ Nelson, Mexicano 777 and many others.
