The Great Hip Hop Hoax (ctba)
UK/2013/88mins/18. Dir: Jeanie Finlay. With: Billy Boyd, Gavin Bain.
An elaborate deception becomes a bizarre way of life. Californian rap duo Silibil ‘n’ Brains are poised to take the music world by storm. They’re talking the talk... walking the walk... and they’ve just pocketed a hefty advance from a major music label. Surely nothing could go wrong? Truth is definitely stranger than fiction in this astonishing, funny and moving documentary that touches on issues of Scottish national identity whilst showing the unbelievable lengths to which people will go to achieve fame.
