Coming off the fascination documentary My Kid Could Paint That, then following it up with the post-war documentary The Tillman Story, director Amir Bar-Lev is heading into very different territory with his look at the world of DJ’ing in Re:Generation Music Project.
The film, which will hit limited theaters next month, follows five major DJs (Skrillex, DJ Premier, The Crystal Method, Pretty Lights and Mark Ronson) as they interact with major musical acts like Nas, The Doors, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, LeAnn Rimes and Dr. Ralph Stanley in creating that perfect mix.
We have a trailer below via Apple, but official site also features many videos including performances, original tracks and behind-the-scene featurettes. I include some below, but check out the rest at the link above.
