Vancouver International Film Festival released this year’s lineup and it includes a live appearance from hip hop icon Chuck D.
The Public Enemy founder will dissect “Fight the Power” during a live edition of the Song Exploder podcast. The song was specially commissioned for Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
The appearance is part of the festival’s expanded VIFF Live program, which this year also includes a live episode of Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington’s AdultSwim.com series On Cinema at the Cinema Live!
“VIFF Live has created a platform to push the boundaries of festival programming, exploring how a multitude of artistic genres intersect with cinema to create unique once-in-a-lifetime experiences for VIFF audiences,” said VIFF programmer and curator Ken Tsui.
