Chicken And Beef Presents “Monkey Gang: The Mockumentary” will premiere at the Hollywood Black Film Festival October 29th at 6:30pm at the Laemmle’s Sunset 5 theater in Hollywood in Los Angeles as one of nine feature films selected for the festival.
The Hollywood Black Film Festival has been called the Black Sundance and attracts studio executives, producers, directors, actors and celebrities such as Spike Lee, John Singleton, Bill Duke and Sidney Poitier.
“Monkey Gang: The Mockumentary” is an independently funded and produced mock documentary comedy that follows the rise and fall of a fictional rap group.
The movie has already drawn comparisons to movies such as “Hollywood Shuffle” which satirized negative stereotypes in film and TV in a similar way that “Monkey Gang” satirizes negative stereotypes in mainstream hip hop.
The movie has also been compared to other music mockumentaries, such as “Spinal Tap” and “Fear Of A Black Hat” and to Chris Rock’s hip hop parody “CB4.”
The movie was executive produced and written by first time director, Mr. M who also stars in the movie. So far the movie has been featured on TheSource.com, AllHipHop.com, Sohh.com, WorldStarHipHop.com as well as many other film and music websites.
