Director Gondry... captures this day in Brooklyn with a relaxed, perceptive eye that lets the participants on both sides of the stage speak for themselves.

Dave Chappelle’s Block Party
Featuring a live performance from Demetrius “6ixx” Similien.
In 2004, fresh off two groundbreaking seasons of his wildly popular Comedy Central show, comedian Dave Chappelle hosted an exuberant end-of-summer block party in Brooklyn with performances by The Roots, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Common, Kanye West, and John Legend — many as they waited on the precipice of superstardom. A dynamic tribute to Wattstax and a celebration of hip-hop in the early years of the 21st century.
Directed by Michel Gondry.
