Songs for a Re:Generation

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 5:49 PM


Consider it a musical mash-up. Renowned documentary filmmaker Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, My Kid Could Paint That) tasked five prominent DJs/producers from hip-hop and electronica — Mark Ronson, DJ Premier, Skrillex, Pretty Lights, and The Crystal Method — to create new tracks in unfamiliar genres alongside such luminaries as Mos Def, LeAnn Rimes, Ralph Stanley and The Funk Brothers. The experiment is examined in Re:Generation, a documentary that will be screened at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, at AMC Carolina Pavilion, 9541 South Blvd. The showing will include giveaways of movie posters and CDs.
