Thu 1 July 6:15pm
Director: Nick Broomfield
Presenting new material and evidence never heard before, this is the definitive story of Suge Knight, the former CEO of legendary rap music label Death Row Records, and the murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Skakur.
Suge Knight was recently sentenced to 28 years imprisonment for manslaughter in a long line of violent crimes not typically associated with a highly successful record executive.
Last Man Standing takes a look at Death Row and how Los Angeles’ street gang culture came to dominate its business workings, as well as an association with corrupt, gang-affiliated Los Angeles police officers. This world of gang rivalry and dirty cops claimed the lives of two of the world’s greatest rappers – Tupac and Biggie.
Only now that Suge has commenced his 28-year sentence have people started to talk about the truth, and Nick Broomfield‘s compelling documentary shines a light on new evidence, detailing the LAPD’s involvement in these murders and their attempt to conceal evidence.
We are delighted to present a special preview screening + exclusive 30-minute, pre-recorded Q&A with director Nick Broomfield, hosted by DJ and Presenter Trevor Nelson on Thursday 1 July at 6.15pm.
FOLLOWING THE SCREENING + Q&A WE INVITE YOU TO STAY FOR OUR PANEL DISCUSSION ABOUT POLICE CORRUPTION, HOSTED BY LOCAL POET AND ACTIVIST, MARLY TALKS, WITH PANELLISTS STEPHANIE RICHARDS (CRIMINOLOGY GRADUATE AND ASSOCIATE LECTURER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTHAMPTON & CO-FOUNDER OF THE BLACK CRIMINOLOGY NETWORK) AND OTHERS TBA.
