An official trailer for The (R)evolution of Immortal Technique was released on YouTube this week by the rapper's Viper Records label. The new documentary charts the transformation of the rebel wordsmith from an incarcerated youth into a conscious performer before a global stage.
in Lima, Peru, Immortal Technique moved to Harlem where he grew up in 80's. As a youth, Coronel spent a year in a cell for aggravated assault. But as theIMDB
page's plot summary for the documentary summarizes, "Immortal Technique emerged from prison a changed man. As his inner journey continues he travels the world promoting a revolution of consciousness through hip-hop. His path from a troubled youth to a fearless revolutionary is an inspirational must-see."
The trailer for the film shows the rapper in conversation with Dr. Cornel West, Ice-T, and Woody Nelson among others in between screenshots of him rockin' the mic on stages from New Mexico to the Netherlands. The Cary Stuart directed one-hour documentary has no general release date, but Immortal Technique, who visited Costa Mesa to speak on immigration a year ago today, posted the YouTube link for it on Twitter and suggested it would be screening at the Harlem International Film Festival which takes place September 7th-11th.
