The Motherf**ker With The Hat

The Lost Studio

130 S. La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036

8:00pm to 7:00pm

get straight and settle down in NYC with the support of his girl Veronica, his AA sponsor Ralph D, and his loyal cousin Julio until... he finds a hat that isn’t his own left conspicuously behind in his bedroom. His quest to track down the motherfucker with the hat threatens to put him right back where he started. Addiction, pain, and explosive tempers are not exactly what you'd call the ingredients for a side-splitting comedy. Yet Stephen Adly Guirgis has created a raw, touching and thoroughly hilarious masterpiece that earned a "hatful" of theatrical accolades in 2011 and now receives its Los Angeles premiere under the direction of Martin Papazian.

1983, 60 minutes, color, DCP | Written by Spike Lee; directed by Spike Lee; with Monty Ross, Donna Bailey, Stuart Smith, Tommy Redmond Hicks, Horace Long.

Lee won a Student Academy Award for this hour-long film, which he made as his master’s thesis for NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Monty Ross (who would go on to co-produce several of Lee’s features, including Do the Right Thing and Malcolm X) plays a Brooklyn barbershop owner who must decide whether to allow racketeers access to his shop in order to keep his business open. The black-and-white cinematography was the work of Ernest Dickerson, while Lee and Dickerson’s fellow NYU student, Ang Lee, served as assistant director. The acclaimed film also became the first student effort to be screened in Lincoln Center’s prestigious New Directors/New Films festival.

Falso Baiano incorporates flamenco, jazz, and other genres to express their take on the music that gave birth to the samba. The performance also features special guest vocalist Katia Moraes.
