This past Spring, a group of documentary filmmakers followed hip-hop rapper MC Steinberg as he prepared for the biggest show of his career.
The actual events captured by our camera crew would not only showcase the critically-acclaimed art of this underground phenomenon, but also the tortured soul of a genius on the brink of insanity.
Interviews with Steinberg’s friends and family soon reveal an oh-so-tangled web that has to be seen to be believed.
The film features people like Jackie Clarke (Upright Citizens Brigade, Human Giant, Late Night with Conan O’ Brien), Jake Fogelnest (MTV’s SQUiRT TV, VH1’s Best Week Ever), Julie Klausner (SNL’s TV Funhouse, Delocated), Jared Whitham (The Jared Whitham Show), and Nathan Rabin (The Onion AV Club). It also features appearances from Poingly and Darren Mabee’s band We Are The Seahorses.
Winner of the Silver Ace Award at the 2009 Las Vegas International Film Festival!
