Over the weekend Canvas magazine in the Saturday Herald featured the Hip Hop-eration film on its front cover with extended coverage inside. There was also a full page spread in the Herald on Sunday. Both papers talked about the story behind the film which was described as 'shamelessly uplifting". This is part of the advance publicity leading to the general release of the film in cinemas throughout New Zealand this Thursday.
So far there has been no coverage in the local papers here on Waiheke, so here’s hoping they put aside their prejudice and give the film a plug. Waiheke Cinema has decided there won't be much interest so they're showing it in the 5pm slot that they reserve for 'old' people. I don't think they 'get it', do you?
