Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop
I got an e-mail from the executive producer of this film, Michael
Skolnik. He asked me to help promote the release of this DVD. In the
e-mail he says:
"I am manufacturing a very small run of DVDs that we are selling
exclusively through our website, http://www.jhhthefilm.com or
As we have next to no money for marketing and publicity, we are counting
on those who have respect Danny's work in the past to help us get the
word out to his fans that the film is now available."
I had never seen this film or caught his live show, but I do own the CD
and it is really good. I'm also a huge fan of his other film
"Whiteboyz," hopefully that'll get released on DVD soon. Even though
Michael didn't work on "Whiteboyz" I will be returning an e-mail to him
about its eventual DVD release. I'll post on here if he knows anything.
Also included in the e-mail, was a note from Danny himself.
A Message from Danny Hoch:
I've got some exciting news to share amidst all the craziness happening
these days. After much hardship, threats, censorship, unnecessary legal
battles and exasperation, my film "Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop" shot on
location in New York, LA & Havana is now available on DVD. The few of
you who have seen it during its brief appearance in theaters during the
month after Sept 11, know that this film is still timely, and that the
issues addressed in the film, such as U.S. militarism, police brutality,
racism, the prison industry, media collusion, etc.; none of these
situations have ended, in fact they have only worsened.
As we are all working in our individual and collective ways for peace
and justice in this world, I ask that you please support this film in
its uncensored (finally viewable) form, by purchasing it, and urging
your friends, colleagues and comrades to purchase it and share it with
as many people as possible. Many professors and teachers in High Schools
and Universities have requested it, so have several community based
organizations, Hip-Hop youth groups, and of course the Office Of
Homeland Security already has it. I hope they enjoy it too.
I promise that none of the money you spend on this film will go to any
corporation (except maybe amazon.com- depending on how you purchase it),
as the film is being distributed independently by the brave producer at
Soze Productions who has fought tirelessly to get this film out, and
continues to produce media projects that challenge, provoke, educate and
broadcast the realities of the voiceless.
Many of you who have asked me about this film over the past few years
have received a reply of hopeless uncertainty as myself and the film
have struggled through...well, a lot. It's taken me this long to tell
you anything definitive, and that is: THE FILM IS OUT YA'LL! Please
support it however you can.
In sincerest thanks and nuff solidarity in these challenging times,
