Hip Hop-eration

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 2014

PG
Parental Guidance

Hip Hop-eration chronicles a mission to bust some moves, and show that ageing need not be a barrier to joy. The stars of this documentary are a group of self-deprecating, young at heart Waiheke Islanders — some in their 90s — who head to Las Vegas to perform at the 2013 World Hip Hop Championships. Billie Jordan is the crew's inspirational leader. Hip Hop-eration won Moa Awards for Best Documentary and Bryn Evans' direction, plus acclaim from Metro, The Dominion Post and The NZ Herald's Francesca Rudkin; Rudkin called the film heartwarming: "full of laughs, colourful characters and Kiwi attitude".

Pure SuperGold: celebrates the spirit of Nanas everywhere.
– Helene Wong, in a four star Listener review, September 2014
