“Plastic Dreams,” our look into our love of vinyl continues with a film series dedicated to the vinyl enthusiast, and their obsession with the physical format. This wide-ranging collection of films aims to show us the devotion and connection many feel to the format, and forces us to consider our instinct to romanticize nostalgic eras gone by.

The series will take place every Wednesday in August and will also incorporate short films, discussions and other events relevant to the subject matter of each week’s film.

Mixtress X

"Hip Hop is a cultural movement of black youth. As a constantly evolving form of self- expression and a social reflection of contemporary urban life, it is rooted in the oral history of African-American story-telling. Since the inception of Hip Hop, women djs have been vital participants in the construction and development of this international musical genre. "Mixtress X" documents this untold story, spotlighting women hip hop artists' unique contribution to the musical form as they operate and contend with a predominantly male-dominated multi-million dollar industry. While excavating the history of unsung women djs and charting the course of the hip hop movement from a gendered point of view, Mixtress X seeks to provide an uncensored platform for these underground and mainstream women artists who have been transforming their self-images within global Hip Hop movement."
