City of Gods Son is a revolutionary new audio driven cinematic experience by artist Kenzo Digital. A story completely created out of samples and re-appropriated audio and visual media, City of Gods Son stars rappers Nas, Jay Z, Ghostface, Notorious BIG, Raekwon, and actors Samuel Jackson, Lawrence Fishburne, Delroy Lindo, and Al Pacino. Narrated by legendary soul singer Joe Bataan. The project has received critical acclaim from the Huffington Post, Kanye West, Complex Magazine, Fader Magazine, Nahright.com and many others. As one of the most viral and groundbreaking forms of new media art, City of Gods Son fuses musical and cinema mythologies into a one of a kind sound film, redefining how stories can be told and the very definition of the remix.
For the first time this unique new form of sound and video art will be exhibited for the public on Wednesday, July 29th and Thursday, July 30th at 511 West 25th Street, on the 9th floor. Each night will feature back-to-back screenings/listening sessions starting at 8:00pm, followed by a Q&A with director Kenzo Digital. There will be a rooftop party & reception throughout the night. The event is sponsored by Nam June Paiks Studios, Creative Commons, Kenzo Digital Media, and Parimachari. For more information on the project please visit www.CityofGodSon.com
