DKTR & Tugg Present: Scratch (Film Screening + Panel Discussion Moderated by Shepard Fairey w/ Dir. Doug Pray, DJ Z-Trip!)

Doug Pray’s 2001 Scratch was the second of the filmmaker’s great early aughts music documentaries. His debut, the stellar Hype explored the explosion of Seattle’s grunge scene with the same giddy, immersive techniques he brings to his awesome sophomore effort. For Scratch, Pray turns his keen and curious eye on turntable culture, from the birth of hip hop to the geek djs who continue to push the boundaries of scratching and sampling. Using emotive, infectious live performances and intimate interviews with pioneering artists like Afrika Bambaataa , Mix Master Mike and DJ Shadow, Pray gives a moving, poetic testament to the power of the beat. Trust us, even if you hate this music, you’ll love this movie.

Dir. Doug Pray, 2001, 35mm, 92 min.
