House Party


With Full Force (Bow Legged Lou, Paul Anthony, B Fine) in person

Post-screening discussion moderated by Warrington Hudlin

Part of the series Changing the Picture, sponsored by Time Warner Inc.

Dir. Reginald Hudlin. 1990, 100 mins. Digital projection. With Full Force, George Clinton, Christopher Reid, Christopher Martin, Robin Harris. Hip-hop duo Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin—aka Kid ‘n Play—star in this irresistibly energetic Black New Wave comedy classic. The set-up is simple: a grounded teen (Reid) sneaks out of his house to attend the ultimate house party, where an epic night of dance contests, rap battles, and flirtation awaits. With its day-glo colors, dynamite soundtrack of old-school hip-hop, and rare movie appearance by legendary comedian Robin Harris, House Party captures the music, fashion, and spirit of the early ‘90s with infectious exuberance.  Look out for a cameo by funk icon George Clinton.
