Music: The Chalice; DJ Jill Riley
“A group like this is something local music fans have been waiting on for some time. … The Chalice has already won the hearts of many supporters thanks to their fun and feminine approach to hip-hop. …” —City Pages
Quench your hip-hop thirst with the Chalice, the bad-ass female trio that’s poised on the cusp of national notoriety. Emcees Lizzo, Sophia Eris, and Claire de Lune make noise, act sweet, and kill beats with laid-back rhymes and an electric party energy paired with an unbound collection of sounds from old-school hip-hop, soul, funk, R&B, and reggae.
Movie: In the Pit (En el Hoyo)
Directed by Juan Carlos Rulfo
For every bridge built, warns a Mexican proverb, the devil demands one soul. A lyrical and compassionate documentary, In the Pit delves into the personal struggles behind the construction of a massive elevated freeway—Mexico City’s Periferico Beltway, a spectacular modern architectural design that comes with a human cost. This film won awards at festivals around the world, including the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. 2006, video, in Spanish with English subtitles, 84 minutes.
