Nas 'Nasir - The Film' by Rohan Blair-Mangat
Legendary rapper Nas addresses the reality of life in the USA for African-Americans today in Rohan Blair-Mangat's powerful 16 minute film showcasing several tracks from the Kanye West-produced album Nasir, released earlier this year.
Blair-Mangat's film is epic and impressionistic in its scope, employing drama, documentary, and news and archive footage, as well as Nas's performances, to create a multi-layered visual interpretation of seven songs from the album. But it's the theme of black identity and culture, under constant threat of police brutality, that is the constant seam that runs through everything, culminating in the dramatisation of a modern tragedy.
Written and directed by Mangat, shot in New York by Nicholas Bupp, and graded by Ricky Gausis, Nasir - The Film is beautifully articulated expression of righteous anger.
